Uncapped Sri Lankan legspinner Ruwantha Kellapotha, who lives in Melbourne, has been added by Melbourne Renegades as a substitute player for the upcoming BBL season. Before moving to Australia, Kellapotha competed in 20 first-class matches and 12 List A matches in Sri Lanka between 2010 and 2013. Before playing premier cricket for Casey-South Melbourne last season, he played eight seasons in the lower-tier Dandenong District Cricket Association in Melbourne’s south-eastern suburbs for four different club teams, taking 46 wickets over 50-over and T20 cricket to finish the competition as the leading wicket-taker and aid Casey South-Melbourne in reaching the final.
