HUNTLY-North Epsom has boosted its top-order with the addition of opening batsman Shashin Dilranga.
Dilranga, 25, has first-class experience in Sri Lanka with Burgher and will partner with Ryan Grundy at the top of the Power order in the upcoming Bendigo District Cricket Association season.
"He has been in Australia for a period now and looks to be a very fair player," Power captain Elliott Massina said on Thursday.
"He has played some first-class cricket back home and has been playing down in the south eastern suburbs recently.
"So he'll slot into an opening spot alongside Reg (Grundy)... one area we've fallen down a bit in is we haven't been able to get off to good starts in terms of 50-plus run partnerships.
"By all reports Shashin likes to bat time, so that should help us at the top."
The signing of Dilranga will give the Power four Sri Lankans in their side next season, with star batsman Danushka Wijemanna, all-rounder Sandun Ranathunga and wicket-keeper Ajith Rajapaksha to continue with the club.
As well as the addition of Dilranga, the Power are working on securing a replacement for Lewis Stabler.
Left-armer Stabler was the BDCA's most dominant paceman last season, capturing 40 wickets, which included 6-21 in Huntly-North Epsom's semi-final win over Strathfieldsaye.
Stabler, who was picked in the Addy BDCA Team of the Year, has left the Power to join rival club Kangaroo Flat.
"We didn't see that one coming, but at the same time, you want blokes there who want to play for your club," Massina said.
"Lewis was great for us last season and we hope he does well at Kangaroo Flat - apart from the days he plays against us.
"We're working on something as far as getting in a new bowler, which we'll, hopefully, be able to lock in soon."
Apart from Stabler, at this stage the only other departure the Power have from their 2019-20 side is Tharindu Darshana, who has moved for work.
The Power were runners-up in the BDCA last season after the grand final they were to play in against Strathdale-Maristians was called off in the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic that has wreaked havoc on community sport.
At this stage the BDCA is targeting a start date of Saturday, October 3, for its 2020-21 season pending cricket being given the green light to commence.
The BDCA annual general meeting was scheduled to be held earlier this week, but has been delayed.
Huntly-North Epsom is the reigning Twenty20 champion.
