- Asela Gunaratne (Sri Lanka)
A batting all- rounder with powerful shots all-round the wicket, Asela Gunaratne has put together several impressive performances for Sri Lanka this year. He was a sporadic performer in Sri Lanka”s tour to Australia earlier this year. With dignified scores of 52 and 84* in that series, he has shown the world what he is capable of. In just 13 ODIs he has accumulated 319 runs along with 10 wickets.
Unequivocally, he”ll be Mathews” go to man in the upcoming mega event in England. He will be the vital player as Sri Lanka will be itching to climb up the ladder by performing well in Champions Trophy.
