Profile

An offspinner, Maduka Liyanapathiranage was selected for the 2010 Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand as one of the team's key spinners. He had a good series against Pakistan U-19 in December 2009, including a four-wicket haul. He compares his style to Ajantha Mendis. He has ambitions of being an accountant if he cannot make it as a professional cricketer.
