Chameera most exciting bowler since Malinga - Ramanayake
Sri Lanka's fast-bowling coach Champaka Ramanayake has said that 23-year-old Dushmantha Chameera is the most exciting fast-bowling find he had come across since Lasith Malinga.
Ramanayake, a former Sri Lanka seamer with 18 Test caps, was responsible for the emergence of Malinga, and he believes Chameera has the same raw material in him.
Chameera went off the field for treatment in his second over during Pakistan's second innings in Colombo, but returned afterwards to bowl with a lot of pace and picked up three wickets.
He unsettled the Pakistani batsmen and broke the wrist of Wahab Riaz, who was subsequently ruled out of the Test series.
