Sri Lankan spin bowling coach claims to have invented new delivery

The yorker delivery is generally associated with fast bowlers and one which has been perfected by bowlers in the caliber of Sri Lanka’s Lalith Malinga.

But have you heard of a spinner bowling a yorker?

That is what former Sri Lanka ‘A’ team and first-class cricketer Priyantha Weragoda has invented.

With hours and hours of practice he has perfected a new delivery for spinners called the “Spin Yorker”. He is in the process of putting the final touches to it and within two months he is hoping to put out a video on his new invention.

  1. Always excited to see SL invent something different and the list goes on how much we have. The concern right now is that our leading spinner is a part timer who opens the batting while our last 3 so called talents have all found to be having suspect actions! Need to get the basics right first – it is always the starting point for cricket.
