A school in unorthodoxy

Sri Lankans embrace unorthodoxy, at times they even go out of their way to find it. Only, the country never seems to have a dearth of bowlers with peculiar run-ups, actions, delivery points, wrist positions, landing angles… Sri Lanka Cricket has nurtured them all much the same, and we have accepted and enjoyed their ‘weird’ ways because cricket cannot and should not be restricted to a textbook. Of course, with great unorthodoxy comes great confusion, thereby criticism, but the genius of nonconformity will not recede. Not in Sri Lanka at least.
