Whenever there is talk of the best bowlers in IPL history, the name of former Sri Lankan legend pacer Lasith Malinga of Mumbai Indians will come at the top.  Malinga, who was the most successful IPL bowler for a long time, said goodbye to the league after making Mumbai the champion in 2020.  Now from Malinga's own country, another bowler with similar action has been entered.  The only difference is that the team is Chennai Super Kings instead of Mumbai.  (Photo: PTI)

On Sunday 15 May, Chennai fielded Sri Lankan pacer Matisha Patirana against Gujarat Titans.  The 19-year-old right-handed pacer had grabbed everyone's attention earlier this year because of his Lasith Malinga-like action and was curious to see him.  (Photo: PTI)

Patirana was brought in to bowl in the eighth over of the innings and off his very first ball, the pacer made his stellar debut in the IPL by dismissing Shubman Gill on a Malinga-like yorker.  (Photo: PTI)

Due to the small score, Patirana could not bowl the full 4 overs, but in the bowling of 3.1 overs, Patirana spent 24 runs and took two wickets.  Apart from Shubman, Patirna also made Gujarat captain Hardik Pandya his victim.  (Photo: BCCI)

Patirana was signed by CSK a few days ago in place of their injured fast bowler Adam Milne.  Patirana caught everyone's attention with her action and excellent bowling in the Under-19 World Cup this year.  (Photo: PTI)
