New Delhi. Sri Lanka has given amazing spin bowlers to world cricket. The first name in this list is of Muttiah Muralitharan. He took 800 wickets in Tests and 534 wickets in ODIs. Even veteran batsmen used to lose their sweat in playing their off-spin bowling. After this Ajantha Mendis came. Mendis remained an inexplicable puzzle for the batsmen for a long time. Now such a ‘mystery spinner’ has been added to this Sri Lankan team, which is going to increase the trouble of the batsmen. Its name is Maheesh Theekshana.
Mahish made his international debut in ODIs against South Africa 4 days ago. But in the debut ODI itself, Mahish rang the alarm bell for the opposition teams by taking 4 wickets. He was dropped in the series ODI against South Africa. In this match, the South African batsmen could not differentiate between their carrom, googly and off-spin balls and were seen battling for one run each. This was the reason that this 21-year-old bowler was successful in taking 4 wickets for 37 runs in 10 overs. This is the best performance by any bowler to make his ODI debut for Sri Lanka.
Coach Arthur made a special appeal to the fan
Impressed by Thikshana’s performance, a fan shared a post on Twitter about their different bowling styles. In this picture one can easily understand how this mystery spinner throws the carrom ball. Along with this, the fan also wrote a funny caption – Mahish Thikshna’s bowling has more variety than your feet swing. Last night we analyzed his 2 balls and we got shocking results.
Sri Lanka coach Mickey Arthur also saw this tweet. Taking fun of the fan, he wrote that can we stop the analysis of Mahish’s bowling action before the T20 World Cup. This is my request to you.

Being selected for the World Cup being a mystery spinner
Due to being a mystery spinner, Mahish has been selected in the Sri Lankan team for the T20 World Cup. He does not have much experience of playing international cricket. This is his greatest strength. The pitch of UAE and Oman may remain slow. In such a situation, playing Mahish can be difficult even for big batsmen. He has played 11 List A and 24 T20s so far. In this, he has 19 and 22 wickets to his name.
