TEAMS

Kapila Wijegunawardene was a steady medium pace bowler who served Sri Lanka well when chosen. At international level he lacked a yard in pace to be a genuine threat but with an accurate line and the ability to move the ball he could cause batsman trouble if they underestimated his ability. The selectors clearly had Wijegunawardene pegged as strictly a one day bowler and it was in this form of the game that he made his international debut. Taking 2/29 from 8 tidy overs he helped Sri Lanka to a win over Pakistan in his initial match. His Test debut came on the tour of England in 1991 in the one off Test, where he was used sparingly and went wicketless. In his second and final Test against Pakistan at Faisalabad he had a prosperous time having the match analysis of 7/98, and in the second innings his 4/51 nearly bowled Sri Lanka to a memorable victory.
