Profile

Ramanayake was a wholehearted performer, a willing worker with a steely determination - he never shirked the issue. During a period when Sri Lanka lacked a true pace bowling threat Ramanayake, a genuine medium pacer, bore the brunt of the work-load. Ramanayake lacked the raw pace to be a genuine wicket-taking threat at Test level. An honest toiler he usually managed to check the batsman without dismissing them.
