Cricket has witnessed several rags-to-riches stories and Sri Lanka’s latest fast-bowling sensation Dilshan Madushanka could be a new addition to it if he lives up to the expectation. While he is yet to earn a call-up from Sri Lanka’s senior team, the youngster is on the right path at present. He was recently included in Sri Lanka’s training squad for the forthcoming South Africa tour.
The 20-year-old left-arm medium-fast bowler is one of the 22 players chosen for the training. Madushanka has faced several hurdles in his life but has overcome all of them so far. His father Sujith Krishantha is a fisherman. He did not pursue higher studies either to focus on the game.
