Upul Tharanga Biography

Upul Tharanga or Warushavithana Upul Tharanga is a left-handed opening batsman and wicketkeeper for the Srilankan cricketing team. Tharanga started playing at the very young age of 15. Having played for Sri Lanka's under-15, under-17 and under-19 squads, he caught the public eye following his successful innings of 117 and 61 in successive games for the under-19 World Cup in 2004. Upul Tharanga's call up to the national one day squad in July 2005 came with sadness at the loss of his family home which was swept away in the tsunami. Tharanga is well known for taking part in the record-breaking first wicket partnership with Sanath Jayasuriya in the final match of the 2006 tour of England series. Though the year 2007 saw many pitfalls for him, he was back in shape and performed remarkably in the 2011 World Cup.
