Washington Sundar’s perfect off-spinner setup© Twitter
Washington Sundar is leaving quite a mark during his inaugural stint with English county Lancashire, and he has so far given impressive performances. In the fourth and final innings against Kent in Division 1 of the Championship, Sundar took three wickets, helping Lancashire register a comprehensive 184-run win. During the course of the innings, Sundar produced a perfect off-break to rattle the stumps of the batter.
Sundar’s delivery hit the rough patch on the wicket and it turned to a great degree, castling the defence of Kent’s Jordon Cox and he had to walk back after scoring just 1 run.
The ball turned to a great degree between the bat and pad, and took the top of off-stump, leaving Sundar and Lancashire players celebrating. This was Sundar’s second wicket of the innings after he had got the better of Kent skipper Jack Leaning.
