Champaka Priyadarshana Hewage Ramanayake (born January 8, 1965, in Galle) is a former Sri Lankan cricketer who played in 18 Tests and 62 ODIs from 1986 to 1995. He is the current fast bowling coach of Sri Lanka national side.
Champaka who had his education at Richmond College, Galle is widely regarded as one of the steadiest bowlers ever produced by Sri Lanka.
Champaka holds the unusual distinction of being the only bowler to have ever bowled in international cricket at Ray Mitchell Oval, in Mackay, Australia. The venue hosted its only international match during the 1992 Cricket World Cup, and the match was washed out after Champaka's first two deliveries.
