Sri Lankan pacer Lasith Malinga has always been known as one of the most unconventional pacers in the history of the game. His slinging action and spot-on accuracy has troubled one of the best batsmen of this generation.
For a very long period of time, Malinga, with his action, speed, and accuracy, was the most effective fast bowler in limited-overs cricket.
In recent times, due to age factor and recurring injuries, Malinga has gained weight and he is not as fit as he used to be.
Recently, in a domestic game, Malinga was leading his side to a victory in MCA Premier League Knock-Out tournament beating LB Finance by 82 runs according to the D/L method.
Interestingly Lasith bowled off-spinners in order to quickly go through the overs, during the match. It was a good change to see the deadly pacer bowl gentle off-spinners and influenced batsmen to go for big hits.
Malinga took three scalps for 22 runs and Sachithra Senanayake took 3 wickets for 35 runs. Shalika Karunanayake of Teejay Lanka was adjudged man of the match.
