Lahiru Madushanka is an exciting pace bowling all-rounder who broke into the Sri Lankan national side, playing the first of his 4 ODI’s in February 2017. He earned his selection courtesy of his consistent performances across all formats in domestic cricket.

Since his first-class and List A debut’s during the 2012/13 season, Madushanka is approaching 4,000 runs and 200 wickets in domestic cricket. He averages mid-30's with bat and a tick over 30 with the ball across the three formats.

Madushanka hit his straps in 2014/15, hitting 320 runs at 32 and taking 14 wickets at 33.50 in red-ball cricket – alongside List A averages of 33.33 and 18.75 with bat and ball respectively. He struck the first of his two first-class hundreds the following season amongst 296 runs at 42.38, before his barnstorming 2016/17 season that culminated with Sri Lankan selection. In first-class, he struck a career-best 164, amongst 382 runs at 38.20, and took 17 wickets at 30.47. He also dominated List A cricket hitting 233 runs at 116.50 and 14 wickets at 19.85.

In 2018/19, he was again in fine form, taking 23 wickets at 21.56 including career-best figures of 6-51 alongside 352 runs at 29.33 with 3 half-centuries in first-class cricket.

Courtesy of his exploits, he was picked up by Northern Premier League club Blackpool in 2019 and impressed, hitting 487 runs at 54.11 alongside 21 wickets at 15.62. Unfortunately for Blackpool, Madushanka was selected for the Emerging Players tour to South Africa in June. His performances on this tour resulted in a national re-call September, when he played a T20 against New Zealand, hitting a quick-fire 20 (but didn't bowl).

The quick bowling all-rounder is very much in the national mix, but should the opportunity arise, he is keen to return abroad in 2022. Due to ECB endorsement / Home Office regulations, unfortunately, he cannot return to the UK due to the non-completion of his UKCC level 2 course, therefore, he is open to options in Ireland and Holland for the 2022 season.
