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 over 160 domestic matches across the three formats since his T20 debut in April 2008.

He has scored well over 3,000 runs with a highest score of 107 and has bagged 200 plus wickets, the majority of which coming in red-ball cricket.

Udayanga currently plays for Kandy Customs Sports Club, with whom he joined for the current 2022/23 season. He has previously represented a number of Sri Lankan sides including the likes of Galle, Moors, 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 has also enjoyed two successful stints in England with Madeley in the Shropshire County Cricket League. Over the 2021-22 seasons, the Sri Lankan pro scored 1,598 runs at 47 alongside his 72 wickets at 18.85.

Udayanga is a high-class performer who, following his Sri Lankan domestic season will embark on a third UK stint having signed for Lindfield for their 2023 Sussex League campaign.
