TEAMS

Kosala Kuruppuarachchi proved a difficult proposition for both commentators and batsman alike on his debut. A left-arm medium-pace bowler Kuruppuarachchi had a dream introduction into the Test arena. In the first innings he produced a sterling display capturing 5 for 44 as the Pakistan batting lineup was routed. In the second innings he provided solid support for Ravi Ratnayeke taking a further two wickets. Sri Lanka achieved their first victory over Pakistan in Test cricket and Kuruppuarachchi took a major part in it. Injury forced him to miss the final Test in the series. Sadly his only other Test was during the abandoned Test series against New Zealand.
