Madhawa Nimesh is a talented batting all-rounder playing for Sri Lanka Air Force Sports Club in Sri Lanka’s Tier B Premier Competitions.

Playing alongside fellow CricX star Suminda Lakshan, Nimesh comes highly recommended by legendary Sri Lankan league pro, Gamindu Kanishka, as a player who will excel in English conditions.

He is an intelligent cricketer who bats in the middle-order and bowls medium pace. He boasts batting averages of 27.41 and 30.54 in first-class and List A respectively.

A former schoolboy prodigy, Nimesh was a stand-out for the prestigious Royal Pandura College – skippering each of the age-group sides.

He went on to captain the Sri Lanka Under-15’s, and vice-captain the Under-17’s on their Malaysian and UK tours, respectively. Nimesh was then named in the Sri Lankan Under-19 World Cup squad but failed to make the final touring party.

In December 2016, Nimesh made his professional debut, playing a first-class match for Panadura. He moved to Kalutara Town Club for the next two seasons, before joining his current side – Sri Lanka Air Force, for the 2019/20 season.

Nimesh is a very competent all-rounder who enjoyed his maiden UK stint in 2021 playing for Home Counties Premier League club Finchampstead, averaging 28.33, and 25.21 with bat and ball respectively. He enjoyed decent success which he replicated during his second UK stint in 2022 for Killyclooney in the North West Cricket Union.

The talented Sri Lankan all-rounder is keen to play down under for the 2022/23 season, before embarking on a UK return for the 2023 summer.
