Kasun Madushanka (27) is a high-class quick playing for the star-studded Sinhalese Sports Club in Sri Lanka. The right-arm seamer boasts an impressive domestic record, with neigh on 250 wickets to include 186 at 28.70 in 68 first-class games. Whilst known for his skills with the ball, he has shown glimpses of his batting ability with 2 first-class half centuries and highest score of 78.

A former Sri Lankan Under-19 star, Madushanka has represented the Sri Lankan Emerging Players, Under-23s, Under-25s and various Board XI’s over the years. In October 2016, he was picked for Sri Lanka's tour of Zimbabwe, but didn't feature. Nevertheless, he has remains in the mix since, to include an "A" match against the touring South Africans in July 2018. 

Madushanka is a highly respected player in Sri Lankan circles and is set to return to Northern shores in 2019, following his successful maiden UK stint in 2017. Playing for Lancaster in the strong Northern ECB Premier League, the quick, who regularly clocks in the mid-80’s (mph), took 47 wickets at 15.02 in all cricket alongside 349 runs at 19.39.

The UKCC Level 2 holder has signed with Horsford for their East Anglian Premier League campaign and much is expected of the talented quick, who comes highly recommended by various coaches, including former Sri Lankan High Performance Coach Simon Willis.
