Bio

A veteran of two one-day World Cups, Chamara Silva has been a useful batsman for Sri Lanka at various times over the past decade.

On the last occasion the Australians faced him in August, he helped drive his side to victory in Colombo with a vital 63.

Silva was first picked as a 19-year-old and starred during his ODI debut with a composed 55 before being stumped off Shane Warne in Colombo.

After struggling to secure a spot, he was called back under coach Tom Moody’s reign and has been used regularly since.

He owns an ODI century – 107 not against India in 2007 – and by September 2011 had registered 13 fifties in 74 matches.
