There are many talents in the world of cricket. However, the careers of some had a great start. But, they could not take advantage of it. Sometimes due to luck, sometimes due to their own mistakes, these players could not do justice to their talent. This is also the story of Sri Lankan fast bowler Shehan Madhushanka who is now away from cricket. When Madhushanka made his debut, he was believed to be the future of Sri Lanka. But, soon the future of this bowler got dark.
At the beginning of the year 2018, a triseries between Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe was held in Bangladesh. Sri Lanka have given 22-year-old Shehan Madhushanka a chance in the team for the first time for this series. Madhushanka played only three first-class, List A matches during that time. But the selectors saw his speed and gave him a chance in the team. After this, today i.e. 27th January 2018, Madhushanka got the chance to make his ODI debut. His ODI career ended after this match.
