Dushmantha Chameera Profile


Pathira Vasan Dushmantha Chameera is a Sri Lankan cricketer born on the 11th of January, 1992. The 26-year old is right-arm fast bowler. He is known for bowling deliveries over 142 km/h consistently.


Background


Chameera’s cricketing career began with the Nondescripts Cricket Club. He has played over 80 matches in the domestic circuit and has taken close to 120 wickets at an average of 32.


Debut


Chameera made his ODI debut on January 29, 2015 against New Zealand. He bowled 8 overs at an economy rate of 7.50 and picked up two wickets. A 145 kmph delivery made Ross Taylor his first victim in international cricket and Sri Lanka went on to win the game by 34 runs.


Just five months later Chameera was handed a test cap against Pakistan. He picked up four wickets in the match which the islanders won by seven wickets.


Rise to Glory


The 26-year old’s best bowling figures in whites came against New Zealand on December 2015 at Hamilton where he ended with five wickets by giving 47 runs.


Low Points


Chameera was ruled out of Sri Lanka’s tour to England in May 2016 due to a stress fracture in his lower back.


The pacer has not had any notable record to his name. He has played 39 international games with just 46 wickets at a not-so-great average. He did not have a great T20 series against India in 2017.
