While cricket is reckoned as an extremely competitive sport but there’s always some room for sportsman spirit. The notion was recently endorsed by Sri Lanka’s pacer Lasith Malinga who was spotted with Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis discussing his slower balls tactics with which he foxes batters time and again.
Known as a death overs specialist, the Sri Lankan veteran possesses a plethora of tricks which aid him in triumphing against top batters. However, the former captain didn’t shy away from spilling his secrets as he was found guiding the young Australian player. Sri Lanka did lose their warm-up game against Australia but this act of the 35-year old player won him many hearts.
The Galle born would once again hold key in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament which is scheduled to commence from May 30 in England and Wales. A dispirited unit of Islanders is in dire need of motivation and this could come from the most senior player of this squad. Sri Lanka’s World Cup journey will begin against New Zealand on June 1 at Cardiff.
