Profile

Akalanka Ganegama is a fast bowler who, with some work, may well prove a useful, quick-scoring ODI allrounder. Keen to learn, from men such as Chaminda Vaas and Glenn McGrath no less, Ganegama was introduced to cricket by former Sri Lanka wicket-keeper Russel Hamer when he attended his private coaching classes. He soon made his mark at Susamyawardena College, bagging nine wickets in the match against Ananda College. The performance secured a scholarship to study and play for Ananda College, one of the country's leading Buddhist institutions.
