South Africa's left-arm wrist spinner Paul Adams had impressed spectators for the first time in a match against England in 1995-96. After bewitching the English, their unique bowling action was dubbed as similar to a "Frog in Blender." Fast forward 24 years and Kevin Koththiigoda, a Sri Lankan spinner, is outpacing the South African by creating an even more disastrous version of the action “Frog in a Blender”. The 21-year-old from Galle and currently playing for the Bangla Tigers in the Abu Dhabi T10 League has stunned Twitter fans with his unorthodox action. Kevin Koththiigoda is not the first spinner whose action was compared to Paul Adams. Indian player Shivil Kaushik caught everyone's attention after he debuted at the IPL for the Gujarat Lions in 2016. Within minutes, after delivering his first ball, Kaushik caught the Internet by storm thanks to his action “Frog in a Blender & # 39 ;.

Incorrect He can. It is similar to the action of Paul Adam, who performed 134 test shutters in 45 games.

Do not think that it generated any spin. One more physical output

Kevin Koththiigoda first caught the eye during the 2017 U19 Asia Cup in Malaysia.
Koththiigoda, who is originally from Galle and is a spinner on his right arm, was one of the members of the Sri Lankan team that beat Afghanistan in 61 races. The unorthodox spinner took a wicket in the match.
On Sunday in Abu Dhabi, the 21-year-old caught the only wicket to fall at the Karnataka Tuskers' entrances. He dismissed the Johnson Charles of the West Indies, ending with numbers of 1/21 of his two overs.
Despite losing only one wicket, Karnataka Tuskers only managed 114 out of their 10 overs.
In response, the Bangla Tigers lost five wickets but retreaded the target with seven balls left, thanks to Andre Fletcher's 15 of 40 balls and 28 undefeated of only nine Tom Moores balls.
Kevin Koththiigoda played six T20s, taking six shutters at an economy rate of 8.57.
