Top-order batsman Dimuth Karunaratne had only played six one-day internationals when he was selected in Sri Lanka’s ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 squad, but he had already marked himself as one of his country’s emerging talents.
Although still inexperienced at international level, the gifted opening batsman has performed admirably in first class cricket.
Making his ODI debut against England in 2011, Karunaratne scored 4, following up with 60 in his second match.
While Karunaratne has yet to cement his place in a very competitive Sri Lankan side, he has plenty of potential heading into his first World Cup.
