Kevin Koththiigoda first grabbed eyeballs during the 2017 U-19 Asia Cup in Malaysia.

Koththiigoda, who hails from Galle and is a right-arm leg-spinner, was one of the members of the Sri Lankan team that beat Afghanistan by 61 runs. The unorthodox spinner took one wicket in the match.

On Sunday, in Abu Dhabi, the 21-year-old took the only wicket to fall in the Karnataka Tuskers’ innings. He dismissed West Indies’ Johnson Charles, ending with figures of 1/21 from his two overs.

Despite losing just one wicket, the Karnataka Tuskers could only manage 114 in their 10 overs.

In reply, the Bangla Tigers lost five wickets but overhauled the target with seven balls to spare largely thanks to Andre Fletcher’s 15-ball 40 and unbeaten 28 off just nine balls from Tom Moores.

Kevin Koththiigoda has played six T20s, taking six wickets at an economy rate of 8.57.
