Tissera, Michael H

Micheal Tissera was born in Colombo on 23rd March 1939 and educated at the prestigious S Thomas College. He was a schoolboy batting prodigy having played in the annual Big Match against Royal when aged just 14.

After making his club debut for NCC, Tissera made a couple of appearances in the MJ Gopalan Trophy before playing a spectacular innings against Australians: after the tourists were bowled out for 249 in a one-day match, Ceylon finished on 103 for 3, Tissera batting at No. 5 and scoring 51 not out against Grahame Corling and Neil Hawke with 12 fours in a mere 31 minutes.

He was named captain for Ceylon Board President’s XI against a strong Pakistan A led by Imtiaz Ahmed. He was part of Sri Lanka's team in the first ever World Cup in 1975 after which he retired. He subsequently managed Sri Lankan teams.

The Sri Lanka West Indies Test series is played for the Sobers-Tissera Trophy.
