Senanayake Mudiyanselage Sachithra Madhushanka Senanayake (born 9 February 1985) is a Sri Lankan cricketer. An all-rounder, he bats right-handed and bowls off spin. He has played first class cricket for the Sinhalese Sports Club since 2006.[1]

Senanayake made his international debut for Sri Lanka in the fourth One Day International (ODI) of the tour of South Africa in January 2012. His call-up followed a domestic season in which he had taken the most wickets in the Sri Lankan Premier League limited overs tournament.[1] During the 2013 Indian Premier League auction he was bought by Kolkata Knight Riders for US$15,000.

He was reported for bowling with a suspected illegal bowling action in June 2014 and subsequently banned from bowling in international cricket in July 2014.
