Shehan Madhushanka is scheduled to marry his girl-friend this year. “He is not a druggist. I don’t know how his name is dragged here,” his girlfriend Pawani Niwarthana, speaking exclusively, said.

“Will do everything to support him in this difficult time,” she added.  Interestingly, Pawani Niwarthana who was engaged to Shehan Madhushanka on March 9, 2015 had posted a message on social media in Sinhalese which is most appropriate to her hat-trick achiever boyfriend in the current situation.

“සතුට ඔබ කරා පැමිනේවි….එසැනින් දකින්න සතුට අග දුක ද ගැට ගැසී. ඇති වග….(Happiness will come towards you. However, at the end of happiness you may have spots of sorrows / misfortune).”

The talented fast bowler had earlier got a place in the Sri Lankan team in the tri-nation ODI series against Bangladesh and Zimbabwe in Dhaka in 2018. Where he got the status of hat-trick in his debut against Bangladesh.
