Hasaranga’s transformation from pace to wrist-spin

At about 16, a young Wanindu Hasaranga was a seam bowler and had the responsibility of opening the bowling for Richmond College. But destiny had something else in store for him. He witnessed a demonstration by his coach on how to bowl leg-spin and decided to follow in his coach’s footsteps.

He also had the belief and willingness to learn the nuances of a craft that demanded years of investment. His coach too believed in his protégé, and it didn’t take long for the duo to have an everlasting bond.
