Sunil Asoka Jayasinghe (born July 15, 1955, Colombo, died 20 April 1995), was a former Sri Lankan ODI cricketer who played two ODIs in the 1979 World Cup competition (the subsequent British Isles tour incorporated his only first-class appearances).


Early days

He was educated at Nalanda College Colombo and captained the College first XI team in 1974. For many years he represented Bloomfield CC and during the 1982/83 Lakspray Trophy compiled a monumental 283 against Colombo CC (this tournament was only recognised as first-class from 1988–89).


He committed suicide aged 39.
