Profile

Sri-Lankan born Sanjay Thuraisingam is a powerfully built fast-medium bowler, who was Canada's top wicket-taker at the 2001 ICC Trophy. The combination of accuracy, variation of pace and excellent length proved most effective, never more so than in the 3rd/ 4th place play-off where his 5 for 25 against Scotland took Canada to the World Cup. He also uses his strength to good effect in the lower order, on occasion contributing useful runs with his powerful hitting. After not playing in the 1997 ICC Trophy he came to prominence in the Canadian team in the 1998 Commonwealth games tournament, snaring Adam Gilchrist for a single in the match against Australia, and bowling four overs for 5 runs opening the bowling against Tendulkar and Khoda. But he fell foul of the management - and Gus Logie, the coach at the time - and was frozen out until his recall for the Intercontinental Cup finals 18 months later.
