Profile

At the time of his debut Jurangpathy was the fourth-youngest player to represent Sri Lanka. A supremely gifted allrounder, the selectors showed little patience or faith discarding him after only two Tests. Admittedly his performances were below par, but considering his age, with some guidance and time he could have developed into an allrounder of international class. Jurangpathy shot to prominence when representing the Under-23 side against Pakistan with some remarkable performances. At 17 years and 342 days he became the youngest Sri Lankan player to score a first-class hundred. He found the transition from schoolboy to Test cricketer a difficult one. In four Test innings he scored three ducks and a single, and he was under-bowled on his debut, delivering only four overs. In his second and final appearance he captured 1 for 69 from 21 overs with his offspin. Discarded by the selectors and ignored somewhat harshly thereafter he later turned up playing grade cricket in Western Australia.
