Profile

An allrounder who bowls slow left-arm, Sachith Pathirana's rise to the national side has been long-awaited, since his promising time in the Under-19 team. Pathirana captained Sri Lanka's U-19 side at the age of 17 in a one-day tri-series against England and Malaysia, and a year later, made a major impact in the 2008 U-19 World Cup, hitting 231 runs and taking 10 wickets.
