Geshan Wimaladharma (26) is an accomplished batting all-rounder playing for Panadura Sports Club in Sri Lankan first-class cricket (Premier Tournament – Tier B). He made his first-class debut in 2012/13 for Saracens Sports Club, before moving to Colombo Cricket Club (2013/14), Badureliya Sports Club (2015/16), Kalutara Physical Culture Centre (2016/17) and his current club last summer.

Wimaladharma is a talented left-hand batsman and off-spin bowler, who made the Sri Lankan Under-19 squad for the quadrangular tournament in India back in 2011, in a side that featured current internationals Niroshan Dikwella, Sadun Weerakkody, Amila Aponso and Lahiru Madushanka.

He has since studied Business Management at BMS in Sri Lanka and starred for the side in the local and international Red Bull Campus tournaments. His 2 wickets and blistering 46 from 25 balls in the Red Bull final helped BMS to victory in the 2016 edition.

Wimaladharma is an intelligent, highly committed cricketer, who spent the majority of the UK 2018 season playing for Stand in Division 1 of the Greater Manchester Cricket League. He showed glimpses of his all-round quality, hitting 398 runs at 26.53 alongside 12 wickets at 25.08, whilst also impressing whilst skippering CricX against the Liverpool League on two occasions (top scoring with a run-a-ball 67 in the opening encounter in July 2018). 

Not only is Wimaladharma a strong all-round cricketer, but he's one of the nicest blokes you'd care to meet. He returned home in August for his marriage and is now eager to return in 2019, for a full stint. He is a player (and person) that comes highly recommended.
