Colombage Don Udesh Sanjeewa Weerasinghe
March 01, 1968, Colombo
Right hand Bat
Sanjeewa Weerasinghe was chosen to represent Sri Lanka as a schoolboy, making his debut against Indian in 1985 at the age of 17 years 189 days - the youngest person to play a Test for Sri Lanka. A legipinner, Weerasinghe was viewed as a potential successor to DS de Silva. In his debut Sri Lanka beat India, and although Weerasinghe was used sparingly, he bowled tidily without taking a wicket. It proved to be Weerasinghe's only Test despite making a subsequent tour to Pakistan. Thereafter he rarely sparkled and his career was over before he was 30.
