Profile

A tall offspinner who extracts substantial turn, Tharindu Kaushal has been perhaps the most exciting young bowler in Sri Lanka's domestic circuit since he made his debut in early 2013. Working off a distinctive high-kneed approach to the crease, Kaushal uses his wrist, as well as his fingers, to put significant work on the ball - a ploy that is said to make his doosra particularly difficult to pick.
