His quickish off-spinners, delivered with a slightly unorthodox action, are invariably accurate.

That fact alone means he is an ideal one-day bowler, especially at home in Sri Lankan conditions.

With time he also developed into a useful middle-order batsman, which used to guarantee him a regular place in the one-day squad.

His career came to a standstill after the Oval Test of 1998, when the International Cricket Council investigated his bowling action.

However, he was cleared to play again by the Sri Lankan board in July 2000, and has been on the fringes of the one-day side ever since.
