The new action king

Sri Lanka’s 18-year-old spinner, Kevin Koththigoda, is the latest entrant to this list of bowlers trying to bamboozle batsmen with an unorthodox action.

The Sri Lankan teenager first grabbed eyeballs during the ongoing Asia Cup in Malaysia.

Koththigoda, who hails from Unawatuna and is a right-arm leg-spinner, was one of the members of the Sri Lankan team that beat Afghanistan by 61 runs.

The unorthodox spinner took one wicket in the match.

The leg-spinner has a bowling action similar to that of the former South African chinaman bowler Adams.
