Career


Domestic Career


Afghanistan v Sri Lanka - ICC Cricket World Cup 2019


Udana made his first-class and List A debut while playing or the Sri Lanka A team during their tour to South Africa in August and September 2008. He then went on to play for Tamil Union in both forms during the 2008-09 season. He was selected by Wayamba to play in both the first-class and Twenty20 portions of the Sri Lankan Inter-Provincial Cricket Tournament. He displayed a superb performance throughout the tournament including the final against Basnahira South, where he took 4 wickets for 31 runs. He was named as Man of the Match of the final along with being named the Player of the Tournament. He showcased his all-round talent in the Sri Lankan Premier league held in August 2012 by taking regular wickets for his team Wayamba United and chipping in with the bat at times.


In 2010, while playing for Wayamba in the 2010 Champions League T20, Udana completed a rare feat by taking a hat-trick of two legal deliveries. With this, he also became the first bowler to take a hattrick in Champions League T20 history.


IPL Career


Isuru, who has played 30 T20Is for Sri Lanka was picked by the Royal Challengers Bangalore for his base price of INR 50 lakhs ahead of IPL 13. Udana's death bowling skills will come to use for Virat Kohli who has been desperately searching for a death-bowler since last few years.


T20I Career


Udana was selected in the Sri Lankan squad for the 2009 ICC World Twenty20. His Twenty20 international debut came on 8 June 2009 against Australia. He played in 5 of Sri Lanka's 7 games in the tournaments, including their loss in the final to Pakistan. He was dropped from the side after the home series against Pakistan in 2009. 


After a long scarce in the international arena, Udana got a chance to play in Twenty20 International series against New Zealand in 2016. In 2018 he was awarded a national contract by Sri Lanka Cricket ahead of the 2018-19 season. On March 22, 2019 he broke the world record for highest individual score (84) batting at number eight in a T20I match while playing against South Africa.


ODI Career


Udana made his ODI debut against India on 24 July 2012 and since then he has only played 18 ODIs. Some indifferent form and regular injuries have kept Udana away from the game for long stretches of time. Although Udana made it to the fifteen for the 2019 World Cup, he didn't quite make an impact in what was a disappointing campaign for Sri Lanka. In March 2019, during the fourth ODI against South Africa, Udana and Kasun Rajitha made the highest partnership for the tenth wicket for Sri Lanka in an ODI match, with 58 runs.
