Sri Lankan speedster Lasith Malinga has once again made the headlines for an astounding achievement that saw him take 10 wickets in two games in less than 24 hours, across two nations. An unbelievable record that speaks volumes of his immense caliber, the slinging force is rampant in his journey towards glory even at the ripe age of 35.
The ‘yorker-machine’ recently represented Mumbai Indians against Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL), returning figures of 3/34. Immediately after the game, he boarded a plane to head back to Sri Lanka to participate in the domestic one-day cricket tournament.
Surprisingly, rather than feeling any fatigue of an international flight, Malinga rocketed his deliveries in emphatic fashion as he tore through the Team Kandy’s batting lineup to finish with breathtaking figures of 7/49. No words can describe the grandeur of Malinga’s mastery over pace bowling.
