Dulip Samaraweera was a determined stoic opening batsman. Chosen as a replacement for Chandika Hathrurusinghe, Samaraweera did not do enough in his limited opportunities to warrant further selection. Making his debut against the West Indies in the inaugural Test between the two nations, he scored 16 and 5. In the following three-Test series against India he failed to pass 50 in any of his six innings. A solid batsman at domestic level, for Sri Lanka he fell below the required standard. When he did see off the opening bowlers he failed to display the required strokeplay to take full advantage, failing to pass 50 in 14 Test innings. He was a handy offspiner.
