Profile

A left-arm seam bowler with a loping, rhythmical run-up and action, Zoysa has shown plenty of promise, but his career has so far been plagued by injuries. He was discarded after a disappointing tour to England in 2002, but he trained hard and regained pace, nip and bounce off the pitch. Most importantly, though, he returned with the delivery that moves back into the right-hander, a weapon that makes him a far more potent force.
