this guy (Shanuka Dissanayake)is a superb all rounder, current season (2009)scored a magnifecent 120 against Moors SC. He bowles left arm leg spin and I wouls think he is an ideal candidate for the shorter version game both Twenty20 and Limited overs. He couls be one of the top bowlers who is most economical in the shorter verion of the game...
