Tharanga Paranavitana Biography

Nishad Tharanga Paranavitana is a Sri Lankan cricketer. He is an opening batsman and an off-break bowler. He made his international debut in a Test match against Pakistan in February 2009. His criket profile came to a stand still when he became one of the Sri Lankan cricketers wounded when their team bus was attacked by terrorists in Lahore, Pakistan. Despite being attacked and badly injured, Paranavitana recovered to register his maiden test century sixteen months later on July 18, 2010 against India at Galle, Sri Lanka. He was dropped from the Test team at the end of 2011, being replaced by Lahiru Thirimanne for Sri Lanka's third Test of their tour of South Africa.
