Sujeewa de Silva should not be confused with another Sri Lankan cricketer, Sajeewa de Silva

Weddikkara Ruwan Sujeewa de Silva (born October 7, 1979 in Beruwala), or Sujeewa de Silva, is a former Sri Lankan Test cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman and a left-arm medium-fast bowler. He is a past student of Kalutara Vidyalaya.

He has been involved in Twenty20 cricket since 2004. He quit from all cricket in 2014.

Domestic career[edit]

In 2000 he broke the record for the most wickets in the Premier Under-23 Trophy, but failed to attract the selectors.

International career[edit]

He made his Test debut on 21 July 2002 against Bangladesh as the 89th Test cap. In 2007, he was called up to the squad as cover for injured Chanaka Welagedara, but did not play a match.[1]
