Pathirana has been making head turns in the ongoing Indian Premier League 2023 as the Sri Lanka pacer has emerged as arguably the best young fast-bowler of the season.
The 20-year old has played a pivotal role in Chennai’s road to the final as the Baby Malinga scalped 17 wickets in 11 matches so far for the 4-time champions.
This season is also labelled as Dhoni’s final hurrah in the cash-rich league and the Men in Yellow will surely give everything to treat Mahi with a fitting farewell from the gentleman’s game.
Chennai will play the IPL Final on Sunday at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Gujarat with either Gujarat Titans or old foes Mumbai Indians.
