Profile

Charith Senanayake was given an opportunity to establish his position as an opener on the 1990-91 tour of New Zealand. A left-hand batsman, he was a capable strokeplayer but was probably better suited down the order on the New Zealand wickets where his defence was questionable against the new ball. In the second Test at Hamilton he made his highest test score of 64, adding 95 for the first wicket with Chandika Hathurusinghe. With Roshan Mahanama and Hathurusinghe forming a solid opening pair Senanayake was not given another opportunity following the tour. In seven one-day internationals he failed to impress somewhat surprisingly, as the free scoring nature of the game seemed to suit his mentality.
