Bio

Nuwan Kulasekara was part of the Sri Lanka World Cup teams which finished runners-up at the 2007 and 2011 tournaments.

A right-arm fast bowler, Kulasekara made his one-day international debut in 2003 against England and made an instant impact, taking 2-19.

His Test debut followed in 2005 but inconsistent form saw the lively seamer dropped from the Sri Lanka squad for eight months in 2006.

Kulasekara bounced back to earn a place in the 2007 World Cup squad and has been a regular member of the ODI squad since.

He was briefly ranked the No.1 ODI bowler in the world in 2009 and his career best figures of 5-22 were against Australia early 2013.

Also handy in the lower order with the bat, Kulasekara has a high score of 73 also against Australia in 2012.
