Profile

Sajeewa de Silva took full advantage of his selection into the National Side with an exemplary performance in the Test series versus Pakistan in Colombo. Although, he has not produced a noteworthy Test contribution since then, he still remains a very useful one-day cricketer. Not a quickie by Test standards, Sajeewa relies more on swing and maintaining an excellent line and length. He has an excellent wicket taking record in ODIs by employing this tactic to often lull the batsmen into thinking they can score off him. (Treshad Sosa, November 1997)
