Matheesha Pathirana is one of the most exciting young talents coming out of Sri Lanka. Recently, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) pacer bowled a bouncer during a net session which led to the lens of the camera getting damaged.

Pathirana is known as ‘Baby Malinga’ because of his bowling action and he has shown the world why Chennai Super Kings invested him and how he can be a lethal bowler for them in the future. He has announced himself on the biggest stage of them all by taking a two wicket haul against the Gujarat Titans. His picked up two wickets which included scalps of Hardik Pandya and Shubman Gill.

Meanwhile, during a net session ahead of the game against Rajasthan Royals (RR), Matheesha Pathirana broke the lens of the camera that was kept to capture the sessions. This speaks about the accuracy and the pace of the bowler and there is no doubt he has a bright future ahead.

Matheesha Pathirana is an excellent death bowler – MS Dhoni

The Chennai captain Dhoni had lavished praise on the teenager and compared him to Lasith Malinga, who is a pioneer of fast bowling in the shortest format of the game.

“I think Pathirana is an excellent death bowler. A bit similar to Malinga. With his action, the margin of error for him is quite big. With a slingy action, he is slightly difficult to pick. He has got that slower one as well, so you have to watch him very carefully. Which means when you spend those extra seconds watching the ball and he is bowling at a decent pace, it becomes quite difficult to consistently hit him,” Dhoni had said in the post-match presentation.
