What did you want to be when you were younger?
Since a young age, I held aspirations of becoming a doctor, yet my love for cricket proved too great to ignore. I had the privilege of receiving coaching from the late father of Nasser Hussain, who played a significant role in nurturing my talents and fostering my dreams of playing professional cricket. Representing my country, Sri Lanka, at the highest level became my ultimate ambition.
