Profile

The eldest of three brothers to represent Sri Lanka at Test level Dhammika Ranatunga had a brief sojourn in the international arena. A stoic opening batsman unsurprisingly blessed with an unflappable temperament Ranatunga opened the batting for Sri Lanka on the tour of Australia in 1990-91. Though it proved to be his only Test series he performed admirably batting with patience and resoluteness making 40 in his debut innings, and following up with 45 at Hobart. His introverted style seemed suited to the longer format of the game and in his limited chances at one-day level he struggled. He subsequently became an influential administrator in the Sri Lankan cricket hierarchy, and was chief executive of the Cricket Board.
