Gentle in pace, but deadly in accuracy, he played his club cricket for the Sinhalese Sports Club. He became internationally known in 1989 after the Youth Asia Cup Championship, and toured England in 1991. In November that year, he became the first bowler in Sri Lankan domestic cricket to take all ten wickets in a single inning, finishing 10 for 41 against Kalutara Physical Culture Club in Colombo.
He represented Sri Lanka in the 1992, 1996 and 1999 World Cup tournaments, where he played as the strike bowler of the team along with newcomer Chaminda Vaas.
Though playing steadily from then on until 2000, he found himself in need of a shoulder operation which more-or-less ended his career, as from then on he found it difficult to find a place for himself within the side.
