Lasith Malinga IPL 2022 Team

Lasith Malinga IPL 2022 Team – Slinga Malinga created that fear in the batsman’s eyes when he started his run up. He is such an intimidating bowler. Although he lost a yard of pace towards the end of his career, he was still lethal and his reputation remained intact. He has represented only one team in IPL history in Mumbai Indians and has won 4 trophies with them.

Lasith Malinga had a unique action which made the lives of batsmen, a nightmare. He was a dream bowler when it comes to T20s and was pretty much ahead of his time. He had all the tricks in his bag, a lethal yorker, a sharp bouncer, a good back of length delivery, a wide yorker, a dipping slower one and the fact that he found some very good swing with the new ball made him the best complete and an all phase bowler in the world.

Malinga’s last ball to Shardul Thakur in the final of the 2019 IPL to defend 2 runs is one of the best ever moments in IPL history. The way he disguised Shardul Thakur with a dipping slower one that trapped him plumb in front will be etched in the minds of the fans forever. The fact that he lost more than a yard of his pace at that time and yet managed to deliver for his team makes him an all time great in T20s.
