TEAMS

Gayan Wijekoon is an allrounder of considerable talent and has performed at every opportunity against touring sides and on tours with the Sri Lanka A team. However, a place in the national team has so far eluded him, with the selectors often opting for others with lesser performances ahead of Wijekoon. The nearest he came to selection was being part of the Test squad to New Zealand in 2004-05. A lively left-arm medium-pacer and a left-hand batsman, he opened both the batting and the bowling for Tamil Union for many years before joining Chilaw Marians CC in 2003-04. Upul Chandana and Mahela Jayawardene have been the major influences in Wijekoon's career so far. He made his international debut in the home Test series against West Indies in July 2005, though with limited success, picking up two wickets. He was recalled for the Twenty20 World Championship in South Africa after a two-year hiatus and the following year made it to the probables squad for the Champions Trophy.
