Imesh Udayanga is an experienced spin bowling all-rounder boasting an impressive career spanning more than a decade.

A former Sri Lankan Under-19 star, Udayanga has played nearly 150 domestic matches across the three formats since his T20 debut in April 2008.

He has scored over 2,500 runs with a highest score of 107 and is on the verge of 200 wickets, the majority of which coming in red-ball cricket.

Udayanga currently plays for Galle Cricket Club, with whom he joined for the 2020/21 season. He has previously represented a number of Sri Lankan sides including the likes of Moors Sports Club, Nondescripts, Badureliya, and Ports Authority.

The all-rounder has also enjoyed success in Australia, playing three stints - initially with Bundoora United (2016/17-17/18) in the Diamond Valley Cricket Association (Money Shield), before a season with Brown Hill (2019/20) in the strong Ballarat Cricket Association (First Grade). In his 37 matches for both clubs, Udayanga scored 762 runs at 27.21 and took 44 wickets at 24.93.

The talented off-spin bowling all-rounder set sail for the UK last summer to play for Madeley in the Shropshire County Cricket League. He was a stand-out hitting 606 runs at 37.88 alongside 29 wickets at 18.07. Given his success, the club was quick to re-sign their Sri Lankan star for their 2022 campaign.

Following the UK season, the Sri Lankan all-rounder is open to playing cricket in Australia or New Zealand for the 2022/23 season.
