Profile

Hasantha Fernando was fast-tracked into Sri Lanka's one-day team as their selectors searched for a fast bowling all-rounder for the 2003 World Cup. After one full first-class season under his belt with Sebastianites Sports Club, he caught the eye with his impressive domestic performances, averaging 35.05 with the bat and hitting three centuries for his club. With the ball he also contributed regularly, claiming 61 wickets at 15.73. He made his one-day debut against Bangladesh in August 2002. Batting at No. 7 he wasn't able to prove his worth due to lack of opportunities but he impressed with the ball, showing plenty of variation despite his lack of pace. He toured South Africa later that year and his Test debut in Johannesburg was forgettable for the fact that he was dismissed for a pair. He made a comeback after a three-year hiatus for the tour of Bangladesh and was later recalled for the Twenty20 World Championship in South Africa.
