Pramodya Wickramasinghe, or 'Wicky' as he was known, was a reliable medium-fast bowler, who lent valuable experience and control to the attack. Relatively gentle in pace, he relied on accuracy and movement in the air. He was educated at Rahula College in Matara and played his club cricket for the Sinhalese Sports Club. He was introduced into the national pool after the Youth Asia Cup Championships in Bangladesh in 1989 and toured England with the Sri Lankan 'B' team in 1991. In 1992 he recorded the historic feat of capturing all ten wickets in an innings when he finished with 10 for 41 against Kalutura YCC. In 2000 he was forced to undergo surgery on his shoulder in Australia and found it difficult to cement his place in the side upon his return.
