After a brief period as the first choice keeper, Dassanayake joined the ever increasing list of players to have held the position. His batting fell below that of international standards and that led to him being replaced. Despite this when asked to bat at first drop to counter the threat of the South African pace attack, which had been demolishing the top order, he did so with courage. After Chamara Dunusinghe was preferred for the tour to New Zealand in 1994/95, Dassanayake made a return to the international scene, representing Sri Lanka 'A' against England A in 1998.
