Profile

A right-arm medium pace bowler, originally from Sri Lanka where at one time he was considered for the Test side, he was also capable of lusty hitting in the late order. He opened the bowling for UAE, and in the ICC Trophy in 1994 he was named the best bowler for his tournament haul of 18 wickets. He played for UAE in the 1996 World Cup with no discernable success.
