Horsford has signed Sri Lankan pace-bowling all-rounder, Kasun Madushanka for their upcoming East Anglian Premier League campaign.
The Manor Park outfit will be hoping it’s second time lucky for Madushanka, who signed for the club prior to last season. However, injury prevented the Sri Lankan star from heading over.
A high-class quick
Madushanka is a high-class quick playing for the star-studded Tamil Union Cricket and Athletic Club in Sri Lanka. The right-arm seamer boasts an impressive domestic record, with over 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 a 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’s been in the mix since, to include an “A” match against the touring South Africans in July 2018.
Madushanka signs for Horsford
Madushanka is a highly respected player in Sri Lankan circles and is set to return to the UK in 2020, having recently signed with EAPL side Horsford.
This will be his second UK stint, following his maiden season for Lancaster in the strong Northern ECB Premier League in 2017 (47 wickets at 15.02 and 349 runs at 19.39).
Much is expected of the talented quick, who comes highly recommended by various coaches, including former Sri Lankan High-Performance Coach Simon Willis.
