There have always been certain bowlers who are test specialists and they haven’t been tried out in limited-overs cricket by their countries despite showing a lot of promise. It is very hard for a bowler to serve in just one format for his country and it does take a lot of mental pressure too.

It is still a great honour to be representing their nation in the greatest format of test cricket and not many have managed to make their Test debut despite making a lot of consistent performances in test cricket. Here are the bowlers that have taken the most tests wickets in the 21st century who have played only the longest format.

Lasith Embuldeniya is one of the brightest talents going around in world cricket at the moment and the Sri Lankan left-arm spinner is expected to make wonders for the nation in the future. He has made his test debut in 2019, and since that he has played 11 tests so far.

Embuldeniya has picked up 49 wickets in his career so far which is the fifth-highest in the 21st century among bowlers that have played test cricket. The 24-year-old will make his debut for Sri Lanka in the limited-overs format soon and he will be a key factor for Sri Lanka in the near future.
