He was a heavy scorer in domestic cricket in Ceylon. In a match in the Government Services league in July 1959 he scored 276 out of a team total of 925. In 1967-68, playing for Nomads in the P Sara Trophy, he set a record for the highest run aggregate for a season. Premachandra is the second of four Dandeniya de Silva brothers. His elder brother Hemachandra was also a Ceylonese first class cricketer. His younger brother Somachandra played Test cricket for Sri Lanka and later became the Chairman of Sri Lanka Cricket. After complaints by the match umpires, Premachandra and Hemachandra were suspended for 12 months in May 1965 for misbehaviour during a P Sara Trophy match. In September 2018, he was one of 49 former Sri Lankan cricketers felicitated by Sri Lanka Cricket, to honour them for their services before Sri Lanka became a full member of the International Cricket Council (ICC).
