Profile

Following in the footsteps of his father, Niron Gunasekera, who made five first-class appearances in Sri Lanka, Ruvindu took to the game and made his ODI debut in July 2008 against Bermuda, aged just 16. An important batsman for Canada, he scored 207 runs at the 2010 Under-19 World Cup 2010 Qualifiers, including two half-centuries, and helped them qualify for the main event.
