This is Aravinda De Silva .. right?

He started out as a specialist bowler?

Not only that ... he batted #11???

Is this right?

Wow ...

No. He is Ajith de Silva a left arm spinner. He was one of the best
spinners Sri Lanka had and only played in few tests as he toured South
Africa with Bandula Warnapura. He was banned from playing cricket for 25
years. Ban was lifted few years back but he never played first class
cricket agian. Well, this is unfortunate compared to England players like
Gooch banned only for 3 years. SL lost few very good players due to that
SA tour.

No. Sorry about the name confusion which is bound to
arise with the last name De Silva in Sri Lanka. That
was Asoka De Silva, a specialist spinner. Aravinda
came into the side much later.

no cigar, badri.
As mentioned in my previous posting, it was Ajith de Silva, not Asoka.

Sri Lanka have had FOUR A. De Silvas  play test cricket for them.
They are:

Ajith de Silva
Asoka de Silva
Ashley de Silva
Aravinda de Silva

in addition, there was one Amal Silva.

The guy on the scorecard is Ajith de Silva, a (leg?)spinner. Asoka was also a spinner (and now does commentaries), Ashley was a wicket-keeper and Amal a wicket-keeper***opening bat.
