Profile

Dulip Liyanage, a fast-medium bowler, was a hard-working pace bowler who made his Test debut alongside Muttiah Muralitharan in Colombo in 1992-93. He had an impressive debut, taking the wicket of Tom Moody with his third ball and going onto claim the wickets of Alan Border and David Boon. In the two Tests whcih followed against New Zealand he continued his promising form taking seven wickets in a series generally dominated by Sri Lanka's spinners. On the unresponsive pitches. Injury limited his future opportunities and he drifted into obscurity before making a surprise, albeit short-lived, return to the international arena at one day level in 1997. He represented Sri Lanka in seven ODIs after his return, but after the Wills Quadrangular tournament in Pakistan he was injured again. After an impressive season with Colts CC he was given another chance and recalled to the squad for India's tour of Sri Lanka in August 2001. He played in the final Colombo Test.
