Profile

A collected right-hand batsman with a firm technique, Kaushal Silva churned out hundred after hundred in first-class cricket until the sheer volume in his output could no longer be ignored by the national selectors. His erstwhile omission had largely been because of the surfeit of wicketkeepers in Sri Lanka's Test squad. He had perhaps made enough runs to vindicate place on his batting alone, but the nuances of balancing a side and the quest to groom young batsmen for the future had kept a Test spot out of reach.
