From local cricket to the big time, Ruwantha Kellapotha’s journey has been nothing short of remarkable.
The 31-year-old leg-spinner had plied his trade in Sri Lanka’s first-class competition until 2013, before moving to Melbourne and playing club cricket primarily in the Dandenong District Cricket Association.
Last summer, he made the jump to Premier Cricket with Casey-South Melbourne, claiming 46 wickets across First XI and Super Slam matches to be the competition’s leading wicket-taker. He also represented Victoria’s 2nd XI.
Kellapotha’s achievements would not go unnoticed, rewarded with selection in the Melbourne Renegades Academy squad for last month’s Top End T20 Series in Darwin – with his performances there securing him a spot in the Renegades’ squad for BBL|12.
