Profile

Fernando, tall medium-fast swing bowler and useful lower order batsman, first announced his talent by making Mike Atherton his bunny during the warm-up matches that led upto the 2001 Test series. But, despite impressive performances for his club, Sebastianites, and the A team, he only graduated into the national team in Nov 2003. He made an instant impression, claiming 2 for 13 against England at Dambulla. He also played in the first two Tests, but bowled only 21 overs and was dropped.(Charlie Austin)
