Herath rose to prominence against Australia in 1999 with a 'mystery' ball. He is a left-arm spinner who broke into the side after A striking a tour to England and deceived the Australians in the first few matches with a delivery that darted the other way. After the series he lingered on the fringes of the Test squad for a while, regularly playing for the A team, before being recalled for the third Test against Australia in Colombo. In Pakistan in 2004-05 he showed plenty of signs of his talent bowling slowly through the air, getting it to flight, grip and turn, he took 11 wickets in two Tests.
