TEAMS

Dunusinghe had a successful induction into the Sri Lankan Test side when he made his debut on the 1994-95 tour to New Zealand. In his Test debut at Napier he had a marvelous all round game completing seven dismissals and then making 91 in the second innings, as Sri Lanka completed a rare victory away from home. With a safe pair of hands, it seemed Sri Lanka had found a player who could finally fill the wicketkeeping position, that for so long had been the side's weak point. However, on the subsequent tour to Pakistan, fast bowlers exposed his batting deficiencies. Despite this, his performances behind the stumps were solid. Selected to tour Australia, Romesh Kaluwitharana was preferred in the international matches. It was accepted that Dunusinghe was the superior keeper, but not for the first time the selectors opted for the candidate with the stronger batting credentials, and within two years Dunusinghe had faded from even domestic cricket.
