Right-handed batsman

Buddhika is another who has risen up the ranks in Sri Lankan cricket.

The diminutive bowler is a member of the BCCSL Fast Bowling Academy and has played at different levels for the national side.

He has a very lively bowling action and generates good swing and pace off the pitch.

The right-armer made a very impressive debut against Zimbabwe when he took five for 67.

He did not play for the side in the latter half of 2002, but his useful batting, including 45 in a Test against the West Indies, helped secure his selection.
