There have been many weird bowling actions which surprised the cricket community and the latest one is from U-23 Uttar Pradesh player Shiva Singh. The left-arm bowler took a 360-degree rotation while bowling in a recent match during CK Nayudu Trophy match against Bengal. The ball was called as dead ball by the umpire, however, the decision created a discussion among cricket fans.
But have you noticed that Shiva’s bowling action is quite similar to a Sri Lankan legendary bowler. He is none other than Rangana Herath, who is going to retire after the ongoing first Test against England. Shiva Singh too is a left-arm spin bowler like that of Rangana Herath, and if we closely look at former’s bowling action, it’s quite similar to that of Herath. After taking rotation during delivery, Shiva’s bowling style is truly an imitation of Herath’s bowling action. Have a look at videos of both of bowlers and decide.
