Profile

A fast-bowling allrounder, Karunanayake made his one-day debut for Kurunegala Youth Cricket Club when he was 16 and his first-class debut a season later. He represented Sri Lanka at Under-15 level and quickly became a key player in their Under-19 squad. On the 2005 tour of England he made 58 batting at No. 10, in a one-day international at Old Trafford, to confirm his all-round talent, followed by a five-wicket haul in the second Test at Scarborough. He made his maiden century in the 2007-08 season.
