Methushan Thilina is yet another stand-out left-arm spinner coming through Sri Lanka’s domestic ranks.

The tweaker, who plays for Kandy Customs, has been in stellar form of late across the three formats. In May/June 2022, he topped SLC’s Major Clubs T20 Tournament bagging 17 wickets at 8.47. He would then scalp a further 19 wickets at 21.10 in the Limited Overs Tournament in July.

Thilina, who is also a useful batter in the lower-middle order, has enjoyed success during the current Major League tournament taking his first-class wicket tally to 26 wickets at 28.73, including career best figures of 5-80 (39.1) against Galle Cricket Club recently.

A schoolboy, and age group representative star (for sides including Senanayake College, Nugegoda U23s, and Ace Capital U23s), Thilina has now made a serious impression in domestic cricket.

The left-armer is now set to do likewise in the UK having recently signed with Cawthorne for their 2023 Cricket Yorkshire Southern Premier League campaign.

There are no overseas stats available for this player.
