Meet Pavel Florin, the Romanian cricketer with a unique bowling action

When we hear the name Romania during our conversation related to sports, the first sports items that hits our mind is Football and gymnastics. Romania has become popular in the sports arena for producing some stellar players in football and gymnastics. The likes of football player Gheorghe Hagi, tennis stars Iike Nastase, gymnast Nadia Comaneci and Simona Halep are some of the names that comes to our mind when we speak about the sports history of Romania.


But we might be well surprised to hear that there is a decent trend for sports like cricket in this Balkan country. Even though they are not on the mainstream cricket, they have their own cricket structures that have been nurtured domestically.

There is one man among the Romanian cricket players who have caught the attention of all the cricket fans for his unique bowling action. The man is none other than Pavel Florin, who is a spinner and has gained a lot of attention in the ongoing European Cricket League. His unique bowling action is something that surprises us, but for him, it is his quite natural way of bowling.


While talking with ICC on the sidelines, he said that he is quite aware about the fact that his bowling might not look beautiful, but still he enjoys and loves cricket. He might go for some runs while bowling with his unique style, but he has been the center of attraction or the cricket fans from across the world. There were various videos shared on the social media that showcases his unique bowling action and the cricket fans are really enthralled after seeing his style of bowling.

The European Cricket League or ECL is an initiative that is undertaken by the ICC in its mission to spread the message of cricket to other countries where the game is not that much popular.
