Suraj Randiv previously played under the Indian Cricket Team’s (ICT) captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) and for the Chennai Super Kings also.

The 2011 ODI Cricket World Cup final featured Suraj Randiv for Sri Lanka. Under the captaincy of MS Dhoni, the Indian team won its second One Day World Cup title by defeating Sri Lanka in the final match. The legendary spinner Muttiah Muralitharan was replaced in the Sri Lankan cricket team in 2009 by Suraj Randiv.

After that, he spent 7 years playing cricket for the national team. Suraj Randiv has taken seven wickets in seven T20 games at an economy rate of 6.62, 36 wickets in 31 ODIs at an average of 33.72, and 43 wickets in 12 Tests for Sri Lanka at a strike rate of 37.08 overall.
