Madushan Ravichandrakumar (24) is quite the prospect who’s making a huge impact for Bloomfield in first-class cricket this summer. A genuine leg-spin bowling all-rounder, Ravichandrakumar has produced a string of notable performances, playing alongside fellow CricX stars Aravinda Premaratne and Sachin Jayawardena.

In his 6 matches during the 2018/19 season, he has picked up 26 wickets at 18.92 and scored 249 runs at 35.57. The all-rounder has made a successful return to domestic cricket this summer, having previously played 4 first-class games for Tamil Union (2) and Colts (2) during the 2014/15 and 2016/17 seasons, respectively. Whilst unable to cement his spot previously, he’s done that and then some for Bloomfield this summer.

On his first-class return against SL Navy, he produced scores of 46 and 50* alongside bowling figures of 5-59 and 3-42. He backed up with a second 5-wicket haul (5-54) in his next match against Panadura before 35 and 1-51 in his last outing against SL Air SC. Ravichandrakumar has carried his form into the T20 and List A tournaments, picking up regular wickets and producing quick-fire fifties to include 58 from 32 balls against Saracens (T20), 50* from 32 balls v Panadura and 80 from 67 balls v Police Sports Club (List A). He then returned to red ball cricket and in his final outing produced career-best first-class figures of 61 and 6-76 against Police SC. 

The former St Thomas’ College student is now eager to progress in the game and, to continue his development, has signed to play with Euxton for their 2019 Ribblesdale League campaign, following his prior UK stint with Surrey Cricket League (Premier Division) club ORCC in 2017 (402 runs at 33.50 and 21 wickets at 14.67).
