ABOUT

Dhammika Prasad is a Sri Lankan right-arm medium fast bowler. He was born 30 May 1983 at Ragama. The 5 ft 10 in tall speedster is popularly known as Dammi and has played for some prestigious Sri Lankan teams like Basnahira North, De Mazenod College, Kandurata Maroons and Sinhalese Sports Club.


Background


Dhammika did his education in De Mazenod College, Kandana, and has been a popular sports person during his college days. Dhammika begun as a top order batsman in his early days but later switched to medium fast bowling. He was a prominent member of his official college team. He also played for Sri Lanka Schools XI.


Debut


Dhammika made his First Class debut in 2001-02 while playing for Sinhalese Sports Club. He has so far played 114 First Class matches and took 327 wickets with best of 6/25 and scored 2218 runs with highest of 103*.


He made his ODI debut against Bangladesh on 25 February, 2006 at Chittagong. He took 2 wickets for 29 and helped in his team’s 78 run victory.


Dhammika made his Test debut against India on 8 August. 2008 at Colombo. He put up a splendid performance in his very first match by taking 3 wickets in the first innings and 2 wickets in the second innings.


The only T20 he played, was against Australia at Kandy on 6 August, 2011, in which he went wicketless for 37 runs.



Rise to glory


Prasad’s 3 wickets along with Malinga’s 5 wicket haul, destroyed Scotland’s batting line-up and Sri Lanka secured a huge 183-run victory in Edinburg on July 13, 2011.

His 5-wicket haul against England in Leeds was his best performance and this was more special because it came at the time when the team needed it the most, as Sri Lanka defeated the hosts by 100 runs in a close match.


He took 4 wickets in each innings of the match against India at Colombo, even though that effort came in a losing cause.


Low points


Dhammika is a bowler who likes to hit the deck hard, generating bounce and pace of nearly 140 kmph consistently and in this course he is exposed to frequent injuries throughout his career. After his ODI debut, he had a back injury which delayed the Test debut of this talented pacer by around 2 years.


He was selected for 2015 Cricket World Cup but it was unfortunate for the medium pacer that he was ruled out of the mega-event as he fractured his left hand at practice.
