A promising left-handed opener, Shehan Jayasuriya made his first class debut for the Police Sports Club at the age of 18 years. A useful off break bowler, Jayasuriya displayed impressive skill with both bat and ball to earn a spot in the Sri Lanka U19 side. Although he has no relation with Sri Lankan legend Sanath Jayasuriya, Shehan is a steady run-getter with a good technique and a penchant for long innings. His most notable memory is signing up for the Chittagong Kings in the second season of the Bangladesh Premier League. In the 2013 edition of the Champions League T20, he will represent the Kandurata Maroons, the winners of the Super Fours T20 competition in Sri Lanka.
