The fact that he even applauded Rahul Chahar’s delivery that outsmarted him in the T20I series shows how he is a classy man after all. His all-round contribution in the three-match T20I series gave us signs that he is a pure talented material.

Hasaranga was adjudged the Player of the Match in the third and final T20I against India. Moreover, he was also named the Player of the Series. After he made a good impression as an all-rounder, Royal Challengers Bangalore made a canny move to sign him.

The IPL fraternity has already witnessed many worst signings by RCB over the years. However, Wanindu Hasaranga, being the crafty leg-spinner that he really is, could prove to be one of the top signings for Virat Kohli-led RCB in the games to come.

Old tweets of Hasaranga go viral on the internet

The first leg of the IPL took place in India before the league was postponed for obvious reasons. However, the BCCI gave the green light in hosting the second leg of the IPL in the United Arab Emirates. RCB made the right move to sign Hasaranga.

In the first post, he praised Kohli after ending the IPL 2016 season with the most runs. The RCB captain aggregated 973 runs, which is the highest by any player in a season. In another post, he praised Kohli for being adjudged as the Man of the Tournament in international cricket.
