ICC Under 19 Cricket World Cup 2020 has started off with some interesting games in its early days. In the tournament for the fresh talents, one Sri Lankan bowler earned the attention of people around the game with his bowling.
Sri Lanka took on India in the first league game for both teams in the tournament. Sri Lanka won the toss and put India to bat first. An exciting incident happened during the 4th over of Indian innings.
Sri Lankan right-arm fast bowler Mateesha Pathirana was the bowler and the sixth delivery of the over was recorded with 175 kmph speed in the speedometer which is also a wide delivery. The bowler is none other the guy who was trending in social media few days ago with his bowling action which is almost similar to that of Sri Lankan legendary fast bowler Lasith Maling.
His bowling speed stunned everyone when seeing the speedometer. Still, there are some uncertainties with the meter as it is a more unusual thing according to the experts.
