Right from the point of release to making deepening footmarks, Lasith Malinga has by far been one of the greatest bowlers in contemporary cricket.

Lasith Malinga is a practitioner in bowling pin-point Yorkers and toe crushers with ease. Have you seen him turn into an off-spinner?

Much to everyone’s surprise, he turned into an off-spinner during MCA ‘A’ division knockout tournament plying his wares for Teejay Lanka against LB Finance in the final.

Having been faced the axe from the Lankan team in the wake of poor performances so far, he could not spice it up for Pakistan ODI series.

Malinga made use of the time in flexing his muscles in domestic tournament and brought out the best in him as an off-spinner. Having skippered Teejay Lanka side, he was able to claim three important wickets that helped the side claim victory.

Just like he entertains his fans with his slinging action, he was able to pull off what a potential spinner could do. He beefed up his bowling spell and kept it tight by pressing the batsmen in the middle and leg stump. This is how he got it right!
