ABOUT

Chamara Silva Biography


Lindamulage Prageeth Chamara Silva, popularly known as Chamara Silva is a Sri Lankan cricketer, born on the 14th of December, 1979 in Panadura, Sri Lanka. He represented his nation as a right-handed batsman across all three formats of cricket for more than a decade.


Background


Silva started his cricketing career by playing for Panadura Sports Club, the sports club of the Panadura Royal College, where he was educated.


He had a steady beginning to his career and soon rose to the position of captain. His performances drew the attention of the selectors of the Sri Lanka National Cricket Team.


Debut


Chamara Silva had a very disappointing test debut. His first match was played against the New Zealand on the December of 2006. He scored a duck in both his innings and the Kiwis ended up winning the match by a comfortable margin of five wickets.


His ODI debut, which came on August 26, 1999, seven years before his test debut was more promising. Although Sri Lanka lost that match to Australia, Silva scored a half century in his debut.


Rise to Glory


Chamara Silva was an important member of three limited over World Cup runners-up Sri Lanka team in

years 2007 and 2011. In the 2007 ICC World Cup, he managed to make 350 runs with an average of 43.75 with 4 half centuries and a highest score of 64.


He then became an integral part of Sri Lanka’s middle order and also gained a reputation of scoring quick runs and being an aggressive batsman in test cricket.


Low Points


He was found guilty of match fixing while playing and leading the Panadura Sports Club in September 2017. His side’s unusual scoring rate in the first-class match played against Kalutara Physical Culture Club led to many allegations, some of which were proven.


He is, thus, banned from playing cricket for two years.


Club Career


Silva enjoyed a long and illustrious spell, a large part of it as captain with the Panadura Sports Club which ended (maybe temporarily) in unfortunate circumstances.


In addition to that, he has also played first class cricket for Sebastianites Cricket and Athletic Club and the Sinhalese Sports Club for two years respectively.


He was also a part of the inaugural Indian Premier League season after being bought by the Hyderabad based Deccan Chargers.
