Isitha Wijesundera is quite the all-round prospect from Munamaldeniya, in Sri Lanka’s Northwest Province.

He currently plays for Saracens Sports Club and comes highly recommended by former Sri Lankan A skipper, and Sussex League sensation, Nipun Karunanayake.

“Wije” initially broke into professional cricket during the 2016/17 season for Panadura but moved to Saracens in 2019/20. After a solitary season with Kandy Customs (2020/21), and a stint back with Panadura (2021/22) due to COVID, he has since returned to Saracens this summer (2022/23). It’s fair to say, he has impressed.

On his Major League Tournament (first-class) return for Saracens (Aug 2022), he scored 83 from number 8, alongside a couple of wickets (2/62) against Ace Capital. A week later, it was Bloomfield who felt Wije’s wrath, as he bagged his maiden 10-wicket match haul, with figures of 6/23, and 4/60. A few games later, he was at it again, this time against Tamil Union taking figures of 4/73, and 2/35.

As it stands, Wije has now taken 25 wickets at 23.40 in his 14 first-class matches, alongside 15 at 15.53 in 13 T20s. Whilst he’s only notched up the 1 fifty-plus score to date, everyone in the know feels he is a genuine all-rounder, potentially destined for higher honours.

Wije is not just a talented cricketer, but an academic to boot. He has a Degree in Sports Science and Management from the University of Sri Jayewardenepura.

The Sri Lankan all-rounder is quite the prospect who is set on his maiden UK stint in 2023 having recently signed with Madeley for their Shropshire County Cricket League campaign.

There are no overseas stats available for this player.
