Dushmantha Chameera:- A volatile Sri Lankan fast bowler 

Dushmantha Chameera is an out-and-out fast bowler of Sri Lanka. The term ‘out and out’ may feel to someone a far stretched term considering his lean physique. But somehow he generates an “out and out” pace and it has always been fascinating to see.

Many would be surprised to see that he has been in the Sri Lankan setup since 2015. But injuries and inconsistent performances hindered his progress in international cricket. 

Bowling Style of Dushmantha Chameera


Dushmantha has a nice rhythmic run-up, followed by a simple repeatable action. The run-up is all where he produces the pace. He rarely goes below 140 kmph unless a deliberate slower ball. The high arm action brings extra bounce into the picture and the pace along with skiddy nature makes him a force to reckon with.
