Umesha Thimeshani made her mark in Sri Lankan domestic cricket while representing Kandy in the Super Provincial Women’s T20 tournament. Her journey into international cricket began with her T20I debut against South Africa in February 2019, marking the start of her international career. She swiftly transitioned into the ODI format, making her debut during the same series.
Thimeshani showcased her all-round abilities during the South Asian Games in late 2019. She stood out with a solid performance, scoring 56 runs against Bangladesh and making her mark as a bowler by posting figures of 4-8 against the same nation in the final. Her promising contributions earned her a spot in Sri Lanka’s squad for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020.
