Profile for Oshada Fernando. Profile Updated On 20 Wednesday November 2019 165202000000
A stylish right-handed top-order batsman who has come up the hard grind of domestic cricket, Oshada Fernando received instant fame in the Sri Lankan Test cap when he struck a memorable unbeaten half-century in only his second match against a tough South African attack to help his country become the first Asian side in history to win a Test series in the rainbow nation in 2019. 

He made his First Class debut back in 2011 for Colts Cricket Club, aged 18, and then spent nearly seven years in and out of the side with middling performances. His major claim to success was the 2018-19 season, when he emerged as the leading run-scorer with 1181 runs in nine matches, a feat that included six centuries, in the Premier League Tournament. His form in that season transcended formats, as he came up with good performances even in the Super Four Provincial Tournament and in the SLC Twenty20 Tournament. 

A Test cap duly followed in March 2019, and he soon made it to the ODI and the T20I squad on the tour to Pakistan where most of the senior players pulled out citing security worries. He played a key role in blanking the Pakistanis (the then number one side in the world) 3-0, with a Man-of-the-Match winning knock of 78 - also the highest score by a Sri Lankan batsman on debut. 

With Sri Lankan cricket going through a churn at the moment and the top-order rather uncertain, Fernando, with his experience in domestic cricket behind him, could play a key role in bringing back some stability.
