Suraj Randiv Biography


Suraj Randiv is a professional Sri Lankan cricketer. He was born on 30 January 1985 in Matara, Sri Lanka. Suraj is a right arm off spinner and a right-handed batsman who plays all formats of the game.


In 2010, he collected his five-wicket haul in the test match against India with a bowling figure of 5/82.


Background


Suraj Randiv started playing cricket right from his school time. He started as a fast bowler but on the request of his coach, he switched to off-breaks as his school had no spinner in their Under-15 side.


He represented many clubs in domestic cricket matches. Some of them are Sinhalese Sports Club, Southern Province and Kandurata Kites. He also played in the Indian Premier League for Chennai Super Kings in 2011 but was released in 2012.


Debut


Randiv had to wait for his turn in spite of his stellar showing at domestic level because of the presence of Muttiah Muralitharan in the team.


In December 2009, he made his ODI debut against India by replacing Muttiah Muralitharan who had to return home due to an injury. In his debut match, he made his presence felt by taking 3 wickets for 51 runs and made his team win.


On 26 July 2010, after the retirement of the talismanic Muttiah Muralitharan, Suraj made his international test debut against India at Colombo. In his debut match, he bowled 73 wicketless overs for 222 runs, which included 16 maiden overs.


Rise to Glory

Another strong domestic season in 2008-09, where he picked up 43 wickets and the injury to Murali in 2009 made him get into the national team.


Club Career


In 2004, Suraj joined Sinhalese Sports Club with the encouragement from former Sri Lankan captain Marvan Atapattu, but left the club in 2007.


In 2005, he started playing for Southern Province and in 2007 he joined Nondescripts cricket club. Some other clubs represented by him are Kandurata kites, Bloomfield Cricket and Athletic Club, and Ruhuna Rhinos.
