Nawodya Wijayakumara is an exciting young all-rounder playing for Ace Capital Cricket Club in Sri Lankan domestic cricket.

A former Sri Lankan Under-19 player, he broke into first-class in 2019/20, playing for Sebastianites Cricket and Athletic Club and impressed, hitting 2 half-centuries amongst 234 runs at 29.25 in his maiden season.

Last summer, due to the absence of red-ball cricket, he played white-ball for Ace Capital, albeit only a handful of matches. He is looking to return to all three formats when cricket resumes for the 2021/22 season.

An explosive batter who bowls decent seam-up, Wijayakumara is a St. Anthony’s College old boy, who excelled as a junior. He was destined for professional cricket, following a glittering school and provincial age-group career. Now involved with Ace Capital, he is looking to build on his success and push for higher honours in future.

In a view of his development, the all-rounder is set to join Sri Lankan legend Dhammika Prasad with Sussex League club Mayfield as their 2nd XI Player/Coach in 2022.
