Bio

A tall, right-arm fast bowler, Suranga Lakmal first moved into Sri Lanka’s one-day side in December 2009 and has since represented the country in all three formats.

With 29 ODI caps to his name when selected in Sri Lanka’s 2015 World Cup squad, the quick has taken 44 wickets through his one-day career.

In an ominous sign ahead of the World Cup, Lakmal took a career-best 4-30 against England in December 2014, snaring the prize wickets of Joe Root, Ravi Bopara and Eoin Morgan.

After missing out on a place in Sri Lanka’s 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup squad, Lakmal will be eager to make a mark on the tournament this time around.
