A talented left-arm fast-medium bowler, Isuru Udana was fast tracked in the Sri Lankan A team for the tour to South Africa in 2008, without a single first-class game to his credit.
Udana was the leading wicket-taker in the 2008-09 Inter-Provincial T2o tournament, thereby helping Wayamba clinch the title and a place in the Champions Twenty20 League. His variations in pace made him an effective T20 bowler. Subsequently, he was drafted in the Sri Lankan squad for the 2009 ICC World Twenty20. Udana debuted against Australia in the tournament. In 2011, he was included in the Lankan T20 squad for their series against the Aussies. The following year, he was named in Sri Lanka’s ODI squad for their home series against India.
