Kaushalya Weerarante a right arm medium pacer, the starlit of the Under -19 world cup Sri Lankan squad, in 2000.
He took 12 wickets with an average of 13 apiece. These figures helped him to climb the ladder to get selected in the senior team. He has been reserved as an all-rounder for the future. During, his initial years, his bowling impressed more than his batting, but he has an ability to hit the ball cleanly. Weerarante got sidelined, in 2003, after his 11thODI, due to his injury and a poor form. This hindered his progress in fixing a permanent place for himself in the team. He had to spend almost five years, in regaining his form. But his will, made him make a stunning comeback, with the fastest fifty in one day cricket, during a domestic match in 2005. This brought him back in the national squad, and was selected for the tour of West Indies as well as the Asia Cup in 2008.
Kaushalya Weerarante has played in 15 matches, in which he has taken 6 wickets at an economy rate of 4.81. As far as, his batting career goes, in the 15 matches he has played, he scored 160 runs, at an average of 20.00, with 41 as his highest score.
