CHAMARA SILVA
Right-hand batsman; leg-break bowler

FACTFILE
DOB: 14.12.79
Test debut:not yet played
ODI debut: v Auatralia, Colombo (Premadasa), 1999

This youngster has had a tough introduction to international cricket, managing just one fifty in eight innings in one-day matches.

A slightly-built man, he is an industrious batsman, who has inherited namesake Aravinda's slightly bow-legged stance, and bowls occasional leg-breaks.

He is also brilliant fielder, especially in the inner circle.

He excelled as captain of Royal College (Panadura) and was selected for the Under-19 squad for the 1998 Youth World Cup in South Africa.

Hit a classy 54 on his full international debut against an Australian side including Glenn McGrath and Shane Warne and will be hoping for a chance to repeat that form.
