The Top Ten
The Greatest Sri Lankan Cricketer ever Born! The Master Blaster, The Emperor of Sixers... No Cricketer in the History of the Game has Influenced & changed the Sport like the way he did...
Great Player, Patriot & Sri Lankan. He is the Greatest! - Nirmal1991USA
Sanath Jayasuriya: the Match Winner, the Master Blaster, the Little Dynamite, the King of Hard Hitting, the Emperor of Sixers and the Great Sri Lankan Patriot! He is an inspiration to all those who play Cricket. He is my Idol. He is my Inspiration. He has broken more than ONE HUNDRED Batting, Bowling & Fielding World Records! He is the Greatest Sri lankan ever Born. We Love you SANA!
He's not only the Greatest Sri Lankan cricketer, but he's the Greatest cricketer of the whole World!
Sanath is a only best man who hit big sixes
Best team player and best test player that sri lanka has ever produced
He is a hero of sri lankan cricket.And we have gotten to this level is because of the platform they have laid
The Best Batsman in the world and that the world has ever seen and will ever see, for a legend of a man like him, records don't cut it, he went past others and had a higher batting average than all cricketers when he was only a batsman, and also as a wicket-keeper was the best in that form of the game also with the most dismissals in ODI, though its not only what's done on the field but off the field he was a true and purely a gentleman in his kind with helping his society and the world around him through charitable organizations and in other ways. He surely will be missed and will go in the books as the best batsman the face of cricket has ever seen since the day he came into international cricket in 2000 to the present and forever.
The best cricketer of all time. Simply he is a legend in the cricket arena.
Got through the struggles he had to face as a youngster. Picked up 800 wickets in test and 534 wickets in ODI's. What a legend!
Greatest match winner sri lanka has ever produced.
Sri Lanka would not win many matches if he was not there from 1995 to 2011.
He deserves, as we know he is the best bowler all time, never be able to break his record in this century
He is the leading wicket taker in the world. The one Sri Lankan which is known worldwide for good reasons. An incredible player.
Known as Slinga Malinga he has scored 4 wickets in a row he is one of the best Sri Lankan cricketers
Best of all bowlers I personally think he should be number 1
He is the best bowler in the world
He is a REALLY good player I was so sad when he retired
Sanath Jayasuriya is the Greatest, Muttiah Muralitharan & Romesh Kaluwitharana are the co-2nd Greatest & Tillakaratne Dilshan deserves nothing less than the 3rd Greatest!
Unlike bastards like Sangakkara who plays cricket for personal records, Tillakaratne Dilshan plays for the victory of the whole Motherland. He is an Amazing Batsman, Great Bowler and an Incredible Fielder! For me he is the Greatest All-Rounder since Sanath Jayasuriya!
He is the 4th greatest after, sanath, sanga and mahela. His agresive style has always been admired by all sri lankans. His new opening partner, Kushal perera, is almost as dashing, no wonder people have started to think that dilshan, the old boy and kushal, the youngster, are bound to be like kaluwitharana and jayasuriya, like in the 90's. Flashy starts! Another era for sri lanka!
He is very good batsman and bowler
Tillakarnatne Dilshan is my Uncle, he is an amazing cricket player, and I belive he is the best. He is a great batsman and bowler, and he is not a sore losser. He is THE BEST! umm that's all I have to say bye.
One of the best Lankan batsman ever.He is one of the most elegant and stylish players in batting with his drives along the ground and the inside out and sweep and cuts.A great role model to young cricketers.
You've gotta love Sanath, Muttiah, Aravida and amongst them stands this man as well! Someone on whom Sri Lankan cricket could always rely on! Great batsman, great captain and above all, a great human being! He has been there for Sri Lankan cricket when they needed his service the most! He'll always be one of the greatest players of not only Sri Lanka, but also Cricketing history! Hail the master!
His cuts and hooks were sublime and he was also a fantastic fielder!
The best classic Player for ever
It's difficult to compare nowadays cricket with 90s nowadays cricketers get more matches than those days. For me aravinda de silva is the best we ever had, besides sri lanka only won one World Cup and who's behind that glory
The best batsman ever made by sri lanka. Do not compare his glory with modern cricket. He is a match winner and he has at least 10,12 strokes to each ball he faces.
This guy was a cold blooded killer. This from an Indian, Sanath was fire at the top, but he was hit and miss. If sanath succumbed, as sure as death De silva would walk out and set things in motion. Watching him bat was spooky. For a while you don't notice him, you feel what's going on is insignificant in terms of the bigger narrative. And then 10 overs later, you pay attention and realize he has ten shots for every ball bowled at him.
Not betsmen in the world same to ARAVINDA.1996 world cup final match him's greatest inning.
He is a innocent but very talented and also he has a brave heart is always give 100% to the while he bowling, batting, fielding he is under rated player but he is the number 1 odi bowler once and he is also one of the greatest swing bowler after vass
In sri lanka's Bowlers, Lasith Malinga comes in First Place, Rangana Herath in Second Place and Nuwan Kulasekara deserves nothing else than the Third Place
He always show the true sportsmanship during the play. Great player who like to give his best to the country. But being captain in an early stage of the career made him stressed and in-consistence.
He is on Track of Beating DILSHAN, But see one day DILSHAN Will Smash 16 Sixes like Shanaka and Become greatest, even more than JAYASURIYA
Angi is better than chandimal
The future of sl cricket
Great left arm spinner
He is best bowler in the world
Rangana should be right up there with Murali on the ten best Sri Lankan cricketers and int the World's top ten spin bowlers
Most underrated player from sri Lanka. kept a low profile.
very much like iqbal quasim..
Sanath Jayasuriya is the Greatest, but Romesh Kaluwitharana deserves nothing less than the 2nd Greatest!
Along with Sanath, Kalu revolutionized One Day International batting with his aggressive tactics during the 1996 Cricket World Cup. It's always a massive compliment to someone to say they changed the game, and their storming Batting in the 1996 World Cup changed everyone's thinking about how to start innings!
And Man! He was & he will always be the Greatest Wicket-keeper ever to play the Game!
Little Kalu! You are the Greatest Wicket-keeper of All-time! There will never be a keeper better than you. You are the Best because you are the Backbone of the team behind the Wicket. SANA & KALU: The Greatest Batting Pair in the History of the Game!
His Style is Unique & Beautiful to watch... The Drives, The Cuts, The Pulls are textbook accurate! The Best Batsman after Sanath Jayasuriya.
I think he is the best one at all. - RanwanMakara
Marvan scored 8529 ODI runs... He & Sanath destroyed all the bowling attacks back then... A very few knows the fact that he was also known as 'Marlon Kandamantu'
For me there are 3 Opening pairs who changed the world and Marvan is in one of them:
1st: Sanath Jayasuriya & Romesh Kaluwitharana
2nd: Sanath Jayasuriya & Marvan Atapattu
3rd: Sanath Jayasuriya & Tillakaratne Dilshan
Go Sri Lanka!
Simply the best and most consistent fast bowler than Sri Lanka has ever had. Any country would be proud to include him in their list of best cricketers!
The best ever Sri Lankan fast bowler chaminda vaas is the best Sri Lankan bowler after Muralitharan
There is no other bowler as consistent and genuine as he is. He was not only a great bowler but an exceptionally reliable all rounder that gave his all with the bat and ball.
If u can find a better pacer than him, then u are telling a lie. The best pacer in this whole earth!
He is a great cricketer in Sri Lanka
Good captain super man
Certainly deserves to be higher up. Was an absolute beast in the 3 peak years of his career.
He cannot touch Sanath Jayasuriya's Caliber but was an Awesome Player in the 96' World Cup winning team. He was a big factor and played major roles in the win. Was the best 1-down batsman when Sanath or Kalu was dismissed. Asanka did all his best to win the World Cup. What a great player, had to vote for him.
You will never find a better team than the 96' World Cup Winning team.
Sanath Jayasuriya, Romesh Kaluwitharana, Asanka Gurusinha, Aravinda de Silva, Arjuna Ranatunga, Hashan Tillakaratne, Roshan Mahanama, Upul Chandana, Kumar Dharmasena, Chaminda Vaas, Marvan Atapattu, Ravindra Pushpakumara, Pramodya Wickramasinghe & Muttiah Muralitharan.
The Golden Era of Sri Lankan Cricket!
The creater of Carrom Ball and T20 specialist spiner
Pride of Sri lankan cricket. Stood up to racist Australian in their own country, saved Muralis Career.
He is really great captain and he brought his team from low stage to higher stage.
He is wonderful batsman

Tharanga is the best batsman of lankan side and better than kohli and tendulkar

The best sri Lankan fielder.

One of the best...
Awseome and very fun to watch.
He is also like sangakara
Best all rounder.
Good all rounder like Andrew Flindoff
Tallente but un lucky
Good All rounder after Angelo Mathews, he should be n Team for ODI & T20
Worst Player in the Universe
Sri lankan best cricketer
Ranasinghe Arachchige Suranga Lakmal has scored 2 ODI runs at an average of 0.5 in 17 matched with a highest score of 1 not out! Have you ever seen better figures than that?
He played a vital role in Sanath Jayasuriya's Incredible 189 Match!
He is the best Sri Lankan test batsman after magela and sanga he got appointed to the test team of the year 2009 as a batsman. He ranked no 7 in icc test rankings 2009 and scored 1500 runs in that year. He got injured in Lahore attack and became the man of the series vs NZ from the very first series after he got recovered. Still holds the best second highest average by any Sri Lankan test batsman with the average of around 49
Our Lovely UNANDUWA! What a key player in the 96 World Cup winning team! Now he's a Umpire!
The Gentle Giant! He was an Incredibly talented Cricketer... - Nirmal1991USA
Best fielder along with Roshan Mahanama!
One of the Best Fielders ever! He is among the Greatest fielders Sri Lanka ever produced like Roshan Mahanama, Sanath, TM Dilshan, Mahela & Kaluwitharana the Best Wicketkeeper in the world!
34 in an over... Best hitting ever..
HAHAAAH! He is a Bowling All-Rounder like Mitchell Johnson, and you think he's a batsman! HO HO HO HO HO HO! REALLY FUNNY!
One of the Greatest Wicket-Keepers or perhaps Batsman in Sri Lanka. When he takes the bat, sri Lanka will receive a big maiden Century or Two
And Then in 20 Matches, he'll score 2000 Runs
Best Wicket-Keeper for Sri lanka after Sangkora
The Most horrible Cricketer! What a loser! Certainly the last place on this list! LOSER!
The Most Terrible Cricketer! What a losing guy! Absolutely last in this list! LOSING GUY!
Terrific player and bloke!
Ranjan is the most stylist batsmen I've ever seen in Sri Lanka cricket. He has been a gentleman no less than to Kumar Sangakkara. 90's cricket had less exposure due to the civil wars in the country under his captaincy. He was an outstanding batsman in his orthodox style as well as hitting sixers in rows but unfortunately spectators noticed less about his talent. Ranjan we still love your less ego and great humanity.
Most beautiful batting action in sri lanka
Action Batta is one of the Best!
He is icc t20 2014 winning team member
one of the best spinner in sri lanka
Dam Prasad surely is one of the most Remarkable bowlers! He even bowled a bolt of 150 kmh-1
His stats & figures says it all! He has scored 36 runs & capruted 27 wickeds in one day internationals. Top score of 15 (not out) best bowling of 4 for 44 and has taken 3 catches also! A Great player!
Pulasthi is the Best Fat Bowler after Chaminda Vaas & Nuwan Soysa! He is a wonderful bowler who is lightning fast! 150 kmh-1 is a simple thing for him!
