Highly rated in domestic circles, Madurusinghe failed to make an impact at international level in his limited opportunities. With his tall build, Madurusinghe could gain bounce when delivering his well-flighted offspin. He went wicketless in his debut against England at Lord's in 1988, but had greater success in his second Test. Against a highly rated Indian batting line-up at Chandigarh, he took 3 for 60, including the wickets of Mohammad Azharuddin and Sachin Tendulkar. Surprisingly he was not chosen again until the 1992-93 series against Australia, where playing in the opening Test at the SSC - he was used sparingly and again was wicketless. It proved to be his final international match, the emergence of Muttiah Muralitharan putting paid to any further opportunities. He remained a fine bowler at domestic level and a more than capable lower-order batsman.
