PROFILE

With his ability to swing the ball both ways through his right-arm medium-pace, Nuwan Kulasekara topped the ICC one-day rankings in 2009 after taking 47 wickets in an 11-month period. Originally a soft-ball enthusiast before he shifted priorities to cricket, Kulasekara is something of a limited-overs expert whose Test appearances have increasingly dwindled over the years. However, alongside Lasith Malinga, he is an integral part of the one-day set-up, and has gradually started pulling his weight with the bat too, making useful lower-order contributions. Indian fans, though, will remember him for the monster six from his Chennai Super Kings captain that formalized India’s grip on the 2011 World Cup.
