His full name is Warnakulasuriya Patabendige Ushantha Joseph Chaminda Vaas.

Vass is Regarded widely as Sri Lanka’s finest new ball bowler ever. It is only the phenomenal success of Muthiah Muralitharan that has somewhat disguised the outstanding feats that Chaminda Vaas  has performed for Sri Lanka in both Tests and ODIs.

Chaminda Vaas has taken over 300 wickets in both forms of the game a tribute to his skill and fitness. The left-handed Vaas swings and seams the ball with skill, the late indipper being his most destructive weapon. Penetrative with either old ball or new, Vaas has the full repertoire of the pace bowler’s trade – a slippery bouncer, a deadly yorker, the ability to reverse swing. A well disguised off cutter as well as one that moves away makes him a most difficult bowler to encounter in almost any clime and his vast experience makes him a bowler to be respected and even feared. Having a descent test average has not  performed as well in ODI’s.
