Another Vaas? CBRLS Kumāra is ready to twist Many Tongues

October 29, 2016

Chandradāsa Brahammana Rālalāgē Lahiru Sudesh Kumāra is representing Sri Lanka at the highest level today at Harare, aged 19 Plus … Quite a mouthful for foreign commentators, Eh! Pity that Ritchie Benaud is not around to struggle with his name in full monty. Lahiru Kumara burst into prominence during the Under 19 tour of England earlier this year and the plethora of injuries among our senior pacemen has opened the door for him to make his debut in the First Test vs Zimbabwe.

Profile

A well-built, right-arm fast bowler from Kandy, Lahiru Kumara had played only eight days of first-class cricket before he was selected to a Sri Lanka Test squad in October 2016. He had, however, shown plenty of promise in the Under-19 circuit. He was part of the team that went to the World Cup in February 2016, and was phenomenal on a tour of England in July-August, the highlight of which was a match-winning 11 for 134 in Northampton.
