Sachitra has been faced with the challenge of acquiring certification for his bowling action from the examination that is to be conducted in the near future by the International Cricket Council.
Sachitra says that his new bowling style is within the ICC regulations which state that the bowler can bend his army only by 15 degrees.
“Before I bowled I told the judges to tell me if there is anything wrong with the action. No one has given me any bad comments about till now.”
Sachitra who participated in a training session in Australia on correcting the bowling action, says that with his new style he is confident of succeeding in the future.”
Sachithra says that his new bowling action allows him to flight the ball better adding that every happens for the best.
