Arachchige Manjula Nishantha Munasinghe (born December 10, 1971), best known as Manjula Munasinghe, is a former Sri Lankan cricketer who played five One Day Internationals (ODIs) between 1994 and 1996.
Born in Colombo, Munasinghe made his first-class debut for the Sinhalese Sports Club during the 1990–91 season. He first played for Sri Lanka "A" during the 1992–93 season, in a quadrangular tournament also involving Bangladesh "A", India "A", and Pakistan "A".
Munasinghe did not play for Sri Lanka, but remained active domestically until the 1997–98 season. His best first-class bowling figures came in February 1994, when he took 9/38 in the first innings of Western Province North's match against Central Province.
Munasinghe made his ODI debut for the Sri Lankan national cricket team during the 1994 edition of the Austral-Asia Cup in the United Arab Emirates, playing a single match. He did not play internationally again until the 1995–96 Benson & Hedges World Series Cup, held in Australia, where he played four matches as a right-arm fast bowler.
After the conclusion of his playing career, Munasinghe emigrated to Melbourne, Australia, firstly working with the Victorian Cricket Association as a junior coach. In 2006, he established the Aus–Lanka Cricket Academy in Rowville, intended to provide cricket coaching for children of immigrants.
