    IPL Debut 2013

    This Sri Lankan off-spinner emerged as one of the small names to earn big bucks in the 2013 IPL Player Auction. He entered with a modest base price of USD 50,000 and ended up bagging a handsome USD 625,000 contract with the KKR. As revealed by the franchise, they bought Senanayake on the suggestion of coach Trevor Bayliss, who had worked with the spin bowling all-rounder during his stint as the coach of Sri Lanka’s national team. Senanayake was handed his international Cap in 2012, in the ODI series against South Africa.
