Profile

A right-arm medium-pace bowler and proficient batsman in the lower order Karnain showed signs of developing into a handy allrounder at one-day level. Karnain made a stunning debut against New Zealand on a dicey wicket at Moratuwa. With the bat he helped Arjuna Ranatunga rescue Sri Lanka from 69 for 5 scoring 28 valuable runs. Then with the ball he sliced through the Kiwi top order capturing 5 for 26, in the process guiding Sri Lanka to victory and earning himself the Man of the Match award. On the 1984-85 World Series tour of Australia followed by the World Championship of Cricket he continued to show promise playing some handy knocks and providing a useful option with his medium pace though he was rather expensive on the pacy wickets of Australia. Though never quite able to live up to those heady heights of his debut match he performed admirably with the ball and bat during his limited-overs career.
