Malinga Bandara is a right-arm leg-spin bowler with great caliber. Even though he was marked as a leg-spinner of immense potential, he has under-performed on numerous occasions. A great performance at the Under-19 level and on Sri Lanka A tours helped him earn a Test debut in 1998-99. However, Bandara failed to keep his place into the side after a disappointing display.
