Days after Sri Lankan leggie Kevin Koththigoda grabbed eyeballs with his bizarre bowling action, Cape Town Blitz’s spinner Gregory Mahlokwana is taking the internet by storm with his ambidextrous bowling skills. During a T20 match between Cape Town and Durban Heat in the ongoing Mzansi Super League, Mahlokwana surprised everyone by picking up wickets bowling with his left and right hand.

The all-rounder first dismissed opener Sarel Erwee on 16 in the eighth over while bowling with the right-hand. He then dismantled the stumps of Durban skipper Dane Vilas in the tenth over, while bowling with left.

After electing to bowl first, Durban got off to a decent start as they dismissed both Cape Town openers Quinton de Kock and Janneman Malan inside the powerplay overs. However, 43-run knocks by Marques Ackerman and Asif Ali helped their side post a challenging 174/6.

In response, Durban lost opener Alex Hales for a duck in the first over. Wihan Lubbe kept Durban in the contest, but his 42 balls 83 went in vain as his side could only manage 164/7 in the 20 overs.
