Karunaratne has not reproduced the same volume of runs since his second season, but has developed a reputation for making big centuries against good attacks. He played two ODIs for Sri Lanka in 2011, making 4 and 60, and was also included in the Test tour to South Africa later in the year, though he did not get a game.

Top-order batsman Dimuth Karunaratne had only played six one-day internationals when he was selected in Sri Lanka’s ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 squad, but he had already marked himself as one of his country’s emerging talents.

His prolific form earnt him a call-up for the Sri Lanka A team against visiting South Africa A, where he again impressed, making 184 against an attack that included Vernon Philander.
