Madagamagamage Dasun Shanaka, or Dasun Shanaka (born 9 September 1991), is a professional Sri Lankan cricketer, who plays for all formats of the game for Sri Lanka in international level.[1] Shanaka is a past student of St.Peter's College, Negombo and Maris Stella College, Negombo.

International career

He was named in Sri Lanka's Twenty20 International (T20I) squad for their series against Pakistan in July 2015.[2] He made his T20I debut on 1 August 2015 as the 58th T20I cap for Sri Lanka.[3]

In May 2016 Shanaka scored a century against Leicestershire County Cricket Club in a first-class match on the tour of England.[4][5] He made his Test debut for Sri Lanka on 19 May 2016 against England on the same tour.[6] He is the 134th Test player for Sri Lanka.[7] He took his first Test wicket by dismissing England captain Alastair Cook. Though he took 3 for 46 runs, he only scored 4 runs in the both innings, and Sri Lanka lost the match by an innings and 88 runs.[6]

He made his One Day International (ODI) debut against Ireland on 16 June 2016. Shanaka scored 42 runs from 19 balls. Bowling, he took five wickets for 42 runs.[8] He became the twelfth player, and third Sri Lankan, to take five wickets on debut in an ODI.[9]

He was re-called for the one-off T20I against India in September 2017.[10] Shanaka was out LBW for naught in the match and did not bowl. India won the match by 8 wickets.
