Wisden overview

Raw and rapid, Prabath Nissanka made an impression on his captain, Sanath Jayasuriya, by clattering him on the helmet during a net session. Capable of genuine speed, he has an upright, uncomplicated action but is prone to spray the ball around. After an accomplished debut at Sharjah in October 2001, where he picked up two cheap wickets in a comfortable victory over Pakistan, he was on the wrong end of a two- pronged hiding from Naved Latif and Inzamam-ul-Haq the next time the teams met. Injuries, particularly to his knees, have slowed his development, but he managed to sneak into the Sri Lankan World Cup squad despite an ordinary VB Series in Australia. (Andrew Miller)
