Shaminda Eranga’s unique feat … unplanned


Who’s the only bowler to take a wicket in his first over in all three forms of international cricket? asked Dennis de Silva from Sri Lanka
The answer to this tricky one is the Sri Lankan fast bowler Shaminda Eranga, who started his international career by taking the wicket of Australia’s Brad Haddin with his second ball in one-day internationals, in Hambantota in August 2011. A month later Eranga struck with his first ball in a Test, also against Australia, having Shane Watson caught at point at the Sinhalese Sports Club in Colombo. And in August 2012, in Pallekele, Eranga bowled India’s Gautam Gambhir with his fourth ball in a T20 international.
