Maduranga Zoysa is a high-class professional who has played 8 seasons abroad, including 2 in Australia, 6 in England, and 100 plus Sri Lankan domestic games.

In Sri Lanka, he moved to current side, Police Sports Club, for the 2019/20 season, following 3 prolific seasons with Lankan Cricket Club (1,264 runs at 37.17). Zoysa has chalked up over 3,000 runs across the three formats, with the majority of these runs scored over the past 4 seasons.

In 2016/17, the diminutive right-hander made a spectacular return to domestic cricket, following a 4-year absence from the first-class game. He scored his 2 centuries en route to a season tally of 545 runs at 45.41. Zoysa has backed-up his barnstorming summer with season tallies of 500 runs at 35.71 (2017/18), 194 runs at 32.33 (2018/19), and 356 runs at 25.42 (2019/20).

Over the past four seasons, Zoysa has struck 3 centuries, 6 fifties, and a highest score of 203 against Kalutara Town.

Zoysa, who also bowls useful leg-spin (11 wickets at 16.09 in List A cricket), has also enjoyed several notable seasons abroad, both in Australia and the UK.

He played two seasons in the Diamond Valley Cricket Association for Eltham Collegians (2008/09, 2010/11) before a handful of stellar summers in London (playing for Acton in the Middlesex League) and Birmingham (for Coventry and North Warwickshire).

During his 3 seasons in London, he scored 2,207 runs at 40.87 (17x50s, 4x100s) in his 59 league matches. Then, who two seasons for Coventry and North Warwickshire (2017-18) yielded 1,973 runs at 40.27 in both league and cup cricket for the club.

In 2019, Zoysa hit the headlines playing for Bracebridge Heath in the Lincolnshire ECB Premier League. He struck the highest individual score in Lincs Prem history when belting 264 from only 137 (27x4s, 14x6s) in the Play-Off Final against Bourne. Zoysa ended the season with 5 hundreds in total amongst 1,327 runs at 51.04. He was also the second leading run-scorer in the Lincolnshire League.

Zoysa is an accomplished and proven performer, who comes highly recommended not only as a quality player but fantastic/enthusiastic coach. Given his success, both home and abroad, Spencer was swift to sign the Sri Lankan star for their Surrey Championship season in 2020. Due to COVID, both parties have deferred the agreement through to the 2021 season.
