There’s no doubt that Lasith Malinga in his prime was the greatest T20 bowler who had oodles of variations even before the T20 format had gained prominence. His slinging unorthodox action was a nightmare for the batters especially when the pacer blazed toe-crushing yorker deliveries. The Sri Lankan legend’s best T20 days were well captured in the blue and gold jersey especially when Malinga won a record 4 IPL titles in his 10-year association with Mumbai Indians. His decade of glory in the MI camp also eventually forged him to become IPL’s all-time leading wicket-taker.

While apart from his fantabulous IPL days, the pacer has also won a Champions League T20 title with MI back in the 2011-12 season. However, the accidental leadership in the 2014 World T20 gave Malinga his career-best moment when the Sri Lankan team finally lifted its first-ever ICC T20 World Cup in 2014.

Besides the above eminent glories, Malinga had recently won a Bangladesh Premier League title with Rangpur Riders in 2017 and a Super 4’sT20 tournament for Southern Express in 2014. Further, years ago the legendary pacer had also won a Twenty20 Cup title in England while playing for Kent.
