Northamptonshire County Cricket Club is delighted to announce the signing of Sri Lanka international Seekkuge Prasanna.

The 30-year-old leg-spinner and hard-hitting batsman is available for the entire NatWest T20 Blast campaign with the Steelbacks – starting with the trip to Grace Road to play Leicestershire on May 20.

He may also appear for Northamptonshire in other competitions during 2016.

Seekkuge has represented his country in one Test match, 25 One-Day Internationals and six T20 international games to date – after making his mark in the Sri Lankan Army side back in 2006.

He toured England with Sri Lanka’s ‘A’ side in the summer of 2011 – and made headlines with a devastating 6-23 burst (after taking the new ball) to sink the England Lions at Worcester. His victims that day included Alex Hales, Joe Root, Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow!

On the strength of that performance he was selected for the full national side in an ODI series against Australia, and accounted for Shaun Marsh, former County skipper Mike Hussey (first ball) and David Hussey on debut.

He returned to England with Sri Lanka ‘A’ in 2014 and was involved in the Tri- Nations one-day series against the Lions and New Zealand ‘A.’

In all T20 cricket Seekkuge has scored 768 runs at an impressive strike-rate of 169.53 and has claimed 54 wickets with an economy rate of 6.82 runs per over.
