Kavindu had his maiden season here in the UK playing for Cleator CC in the North Lancashire and Cumbria Premier league in 2017, where he took time to adapt but still had some excellent contributions throughout the season with bat and ball. Better for the experience, he returned to the UK in 2018, joining Driffield Town CC. He put together 789 runs @ 35.86 and took 29 wickets @ 27.00.

Kavindu returned to these shores for the 2019 season playing for Easington cc and had a difficult season for a player of his calibre. He bounced back in 2021 with 695 runs @ 34.75 and 44 wickets @ 20.89 with an incredible best of 8-34.

A player with a big future in the game he comes highly recommended by former Sri Lankan great and team mate Thilan Kandambi. He is looking to return to the UK once again for next summer to showcase his talent.
