We live in a time when the game of cricket is being experimented with to make it more interesting and a little more engaging, especially for those people who don't have the time to just sit back and spend their entire day watching a Test match.
We have seen these changes in the form of the Day-Night Tests, the 100-ball tournament in England and Wales, the T10 League in Abu Dhabi, which is making waves all over the cricketing world for its short and action-packed matches.
It, therefore, makes it quite obvious that the players also want to mix it up and bring some jazz to the way they play the game of cricket. And that's exactly what the South African and Cape Town Blitz bowler, Gregory Mahlokwana did in a Mzansi Super League match very recently.
Bowling with his right arm in the eighth over, he dismissed Durban Heat opener Sarel Erwee who couldn't place his shot properly and sent the ball flying into the hands of the fielder at midwicket.November 17, 2019
The ambidextrous then decided to switch hands in the next over and attack Heat skipper Dane Villas with a quicker left-hand ball delivery that ended up knocking the bails right off.

That's Mahlokwana's second of the day. His first wicket was bowled Right handed and now he gets a wicket with the quicker left arm.#MSLT20 pic.twitter.com/Gey4JPypq1
Surprisingly, Gregory Mahlokwana isn't the first ambidextrous bowler in the game. Pakistani legend Hanif Mohammad and former England and Essex star Graham Gooch, amongst others, have been able to roll both their arms over from time to time and stun the opponents with the unpredictability.
