Gallage Pramodya Wickramasinghe (born August 14, 1971 in Matara), commonly known as Pramodya Wickramasinghe, is a Sri Lankan cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman and a right-hand medium-fast bowler.

Gentle in pace, but deadly in accuracy, he played his club cricket for the Sinhalese Sports Club. He became internationally known in 1989 after the Youth Asia Cup Championship, and toured England in 1991. In 1992 he managed for the first time to take all ten wickets in a single innings, finishing 10 for 41 against Kalutara.

He represented Sri Lanka in the 1992, 1996 and 1999 World Cup tournaments.

Though playing steadily from then on until 2000, he found himself in need of a shoulder operation which more-or-less ended his career, as from then on he found it difficult to find a place for himself within the side.
