Profile

With a childhood affected by the Tsunami in 2005, Dhananjaya de Silva had to go through several hardships during his school days but continued his focus on cricket simultaneously. He gained recognition while playing for Richmond College. A string of good scores saw him being picked for the Sri Lanka U19 team which played unofficial Tests and ODIs. His 84 in the first unofficial Test earned him accolades as it came against a touring England side.
