Profile

An experienced domestic player when selected to play for Sri Lanka, de Silva's sojourn at international level was a brief one. Making his first class debut in 1984 de Silva had been a steady performer for the Colombo Cricket Club throughout the 80's and early 90's. Sri Lanka's failure to develop a quality test wicketkeeper saw de Silva receive an call up for the one off test against England. Sri Lanka achieved their first test victory over the English, de Silva contributing 9 runs, a catch and one stumping. De Silva's batting failed to impress at international level in his few outings, failing to reach double figures in any innings, and was omitted from the side. His name added to the ever expanding list of former Sri Lankan test wicketkeepers. (Contributed by Johann P Jayasekera , Sep 1999)
