    Aravinda De Silva

    What comes to mind when u think of Aravinda?
    His super pulls and hooks, smashing cut shots.

    what about his personality?
    It's totally different from his batting. And he talks like a girl!

    What do u think?

    He has always appeared like a lone warrior to me.

    I have never seen him to personally give uo, howsoever hopeless the situation. Great belief in his own capabilities and not unjustified !!

    He would take on ANYONE , ANYWHERE, ANYTIME !

    I know what u mean. he put on weight when he was dropped from the squad after the 99 world cup. that was a stupid mistake made by the SL selectors. I still believe he is the best batsman SL ever produced.

    That 66 in the WC semifinal in 96. Awesome counterattack.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    remember hearing a story about when he was playing grade cricket in melbourne. his team was in a bit of trouble in a 2-day match, but aravinda came out and smashed 140 at better than run a ball. after getting out, he came into the rooms and someone asked "what the hell was going on out there?", to which de silva replied "i thought it was a one day match"

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    The century he made in a losing cause in the final of a triangular in Sri Lanka against India. It was the only tournament SL lost at home for around 5 years after their 96'WC win.
