The first Sri Lankan Test player to die, allrounder Srid­haran Jeganathan passed away on May 14, aged 44. A left-arm spinner and lower-order right-hand batsman, Jeganathan played in both Tests of the injury-hit tour of New Zealand in 1982-83. His disappointing return of 19 runs (4.75) included four single-figure scores, and he failed to take a wicket. Ignored for a while, he was recalled for the 1987 World Cup in India and Pakistan, dismissing Richie Richardson of West Indies and taking both wickets (Gooch and Robinson) in the eight­wicket defeat by England at Pune. His 2 for 45 there remained his best bowling in five one-day internationals, in which he took five wickets (41.60) and scored 25 runs (8.33). Jeganathan had toured Eng­land with the team which won the inaugural ICC Trophy in 1979, and took 4 for 92 against Nottinghamshire. In all first­class cricket he took 49 wickets (31.61), and scored 437 runs at 13.66. His highest score, of 74, was made against Tasmania at Devonport on that 1982-83 tour: coming in at 89 for 7, he put on 140 for the eight wicket with Ravi Ratnayeke (64 not out). He later became Malaysia's national coach.
