#3 Kumar Dharmasena
The former off-spinner of the Island nation who featured in 31 Tests and 141 ODIs, also had his fair share of troubles with his bowling action. In 1998, he was investigated by the ICC for stretching his bowling action beyond legal proportions. But 2 years later, he was cleared to bowl and appeared for Sri Lanka in both the formats regularly.
Post his retirement, he turned to umpiring and became a hugely successful one at that. Dharmasena began his umpiring career in 2009 and was inducted into the ICC Elite Panel of umpires in 2011. He was awarded the Umpire of the Year in 2012 for which he received the David Shepherd Trophy.Published 23 Jul 2017, 11:23 IST
