A steady right-arm medium-pace bowler Munasinghe was given a brief run in the
one-day side and, despite not earning further representative honours, he did not
let the team down. Munasinghe had the ability to bowl a consistent line and
length and thus maintained an impressive economy rate in his limited matches.
A constant figure in representative sides, he played numerous matches against
touring sides before being selected for the 1995-96 tour of Australia. His best
performance came at the MCG when he ran through the Australian top order taking
3 for 30, in the process setting up victory for Sri Lanka. Following the conclusion of the World Series he was not selected for the 1996 World Cup and drifted from the international scene.
