Imal Liyanage is a hard-hitting Wicket-Keeper Batsman, originally from Sri Lanka but has represented Qatar in T20 International cricket, having relocated to the region in 2016.

A Left-handed Batsman, Imal was schooled at the prestigious Royal College Colombo and represented Colts Cricket Club im the Sri Lankan domestic U23 competition from 2013 through to 2016, starring for CCC in the 2015 edition with 369 runs @ 52.71 in the 3-Day competition.
