Player Profile

Neither a big hitter with the bat or a serious threat with the ball, Mathews is still going to be a key component of Sri Lanka's side because of the balance he brings. The all-rounder is just as capable of playing a careful knock, as he proved in his match-winning 77 not out against Australia at the MCG last year, as he is of scoring quick runs from his position in the middle order. His bowling is steady and unspectacular, but he is aided by a superb cricketing brain that belies his 23 years. He went at an impressive economy rate of just 4.15 in 2010. To make him the perfect all-round package, Mathews - who has impressed in the IPL with the Kolkata Knight Riders - is also one of Sri Lanka's best fielders.
