Prasanna Jayawardene is a highly talented wicketkeeper-batsman who was kept away outside the Sri Lankan side for a long time due to Kumar Sangakkara's dominance in the team. He is a product of the under-19 system in Sri Lanka. When he finally got his opportunity, Prasanna grabbed it by his both hands and has been a regular feature in the Lankan Test side since 2006. The Colombo born is a hard-worker, which can be clearly displayed in his batting and slick wicket-keeping behind the stumps. Time and again Jayawardene has had to prove himself to retain a place in the side. Though, this does not measure the immense talent this cricketer possesses and more opportunities will do him a world of good.
