Sri Lanka Players in Chennai Super Kings

The Sri Lankan duo of Matheesha Pathirana and Maheesh Theekshana will continue to play for Chennai Super Kings in the IPL 2024.

In 2023 Theekshana picked up 11 wkts for CSK in 13 games and that too at an higher economy rate of 8 runs per over. Overall he has taken 147 wickets in 139 games at an economy of under 7 which shows he is more of a runs stopper rather than a genuine wicket taker. He has represented Barbados Royals. Jaffna Kings, Rangpur Riders and Trinbago Knight Riders in other T20 leagues.

On the other hand Pathirana was a star performer for CSK in 2023 with 19 wickets in 12 matches. His economy was fairly good and he proved to be a genuine wicket taker for CSK. Matheesha Pathirana who bowls with slingy action has overall taken 58 T20 wickets in his young career and represented Desert Vipers in ILt20 and played in LPL other than IPL.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Sri Lanka Players

Wanindu Hasaranga played IPL 2023 for Royal Challengers Bangalore` taking 9 wickets in 8 matches. He was quite ordinary with the bat in IPL 2023 and hence was released by RCB. During the IPL 2024 Auction, he was bought for 1.5 Crores by Sunrisers Hyderabad. Hasaranga was injured recently which made him unable to play the World Cup.

Sri Lanka’s limited over captain is a global commodity when it comes to T20 and has taken 2369 wkts and scored 1995 runs while representing Quetta in PSL. Rangpur in BPL, ST.Kitts in CPL and few others including RCB in IPL.

Sri Lanka Players in Mumbai Indians

Nuwan Thushara and Dilshan Madushanka will make their IPL Debuts by representing one of the biggest IPL Franchise, Mumbai Indians. Nuwan Thushara was picked for 4.8 Crores in the auction while Dilshan Madushanka got 4.6 Crores. Both the pace bowlers seemed to be in high demand.

Dilshan Madushanka stunned everyone in World Cup 2023 with his clinical performances taking 21 wickets in 9 matches. The young man has taken wickets in the ongoing List-A competition in Sri Lanka too. In T20 career he as taken 31 wkts in 33 games while paying in SA20, LPL and ILT20.
