Profile

Kaushik Amalean was selected to play for Sri Lanka as a twenty year old in the final Test of the 1985-86 home series against Pakistan. An impressive display against an England B team had brought his name to the selectors attention. A right-arm fast-medium bowler, he was capable of bowling at a sharp pace gaining inswing with his action. Given the new ball he responded by taking 3 for 59, including the wickets of Moshin Khan and Javed Miandad. Amalean's only other Test match was played on the 1987-88 tour to Australia, when Sri Lanka were crushed at Perth in the one-off Test, though Amalean took a respectable 4 for 97 in Australia's only innings.
