Conisbrough snap up Sri Lankan speedster - 17/04/19

Nipuna Madushanka

Conisbrough have snapped up Sri Lankan quick Nipuna Kariyawasam for their 2019 SYCL campaign.

Kariyawasam (27) is a quality, and quick, seam bowling all-rounder playing domestic cricket in Sri Lanka. Whilst he has been around the domestic circuit since his debut in 2013 (for Moors Sports Club), he has been unable to cement his spot in the respective sides he’s played for.

However, last summer (2017/18) was a breakthrough season for Nipuna, as he dominated the SL T20 and One-Day tournaments taking 9 wickets at 11.44 and 10 wickets at 20.90 respectively.

He finished joint eighth on the latter’s wicket-charts and just outside the top 10 in the T20 competition. His exploits earned selection for the Super Four Provincial Tournament, where he played alongside the likes of Jeewan Mendis and Isuru Udana for Kandy District.

Brother of former Sri Lankan quick Dhammika Prasad, the former Sri Lankan Under-19 squad member, is not only a genuine wicket-taker, who has excelled over the past 12 months, but a handy middle-order batsman with a highest first-class score of 92.

The talented Sri Lankan all-rounder, who comes recommended by Chanaka Welegedara, is set to play UK league cricket in 2019 having recently signed with Conisbrough for their South Yorkshire Cricket League campaign.
