General Information

Farveez Maharoof (born 7 September 1984, in Colombo), Sri Lankan Cricketer, who plays for Tests and ODIs. He first made his impression in the 2004 U19 World Cup in which he Captained the Sri Lankan team. He enjoyed a prolific school career for Wesley College, with the highest score of 243 and best bowling figures of 8 for 20. An all-rounder, he made his Test debut in 2004.At the domestic level, he has represented Bloomfield, Nondescripts, Wayamba, Delhi Daredevils, Lancashire and Barisal Burners.

A mean display during the 2004 ICC Champions Trophy in England, when he exploited the end-of-summer conditions expertly, indicated he could be especially useful when Sri Lanka play in seamer-friendly conditions. A useful series with bat and ball against Pakistan in early 2006 suggested he was ready to push on.

Then came an astonishing display at the Champions Trophy in India when his 6 for 14 skittled West Indies out for 80. He performed creditably with bat and ball for the Delhi Daredevils in the IPL's first season.
