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.
