Right-handed batsman; leg-spin bowler
Test debut: v Sri Lanka, Colombo, 2001
ODI debut: v Zimbabwe, 2001
Potentially a match-winner, he has the ability to score fairly quickly and his unbeaten 158 against India just a few months ago was testament to that - as good an innings as I've seen from any player.
He was the youngest player ever to score a century on Test debut but one stage was left out of the side because of some indiscipline in his batting
However, he regained his place after scoring heavily in domestic cricket and the time out looks to have done him the world of good.
He is also a very good fielder and on occasions is more than useful with his leg-breaks.
