The Sri Lankan got a new mystery spinner Kevin Koththigoda with unorthodox action. In the ongoing U-19 Asia Cup in Malaysia, this mystery bowler bowled superbly against Afghanistan. He took one wicket in that match.
The Sri Lanka ‘A’ opener Dhammika Sudarshana said,”He has a very unusual action. It’s like that of Paul Adams. The action wasn’t coached or anything, it came naturally to him. Initially, he was struggling with the length as he couldn’t see the pitch, but he has improved tremendously.”
“He came with his parents and asked me whether he could change schools. It was a fair request and we didn’t have any objections”.
“Since his action is unique, the batsmen get confused. He is an excellent fielder and a decent batsman. He has got a very bright future ahead of him,” Sudarshana added.
