Profile

Dinuka Hettiarachchi, a left-arm spinner and capable batsman, played cricket at every level from Under-13s to Under-19s and continued to shine with Colombo Colts in domestic competitions. He was given a chance against England A in 1996-97 and against South Africa the following year, and in 1999 he took part in an unofficial tri-series in Abu Dhabi. In 2000 he played against Zimbabwe A, winning a call-up to the Test side on the back of good performances but he failed to find a place in the XI. He finally broke into the side against England in 2000-01 but after a reasonable debut was dropped.
