Lasith Malinga Career
Malinga started playing cricket at the age of 11. There was a beach near his village Rathgama, where he and some of his friends often used to go to play cricket. There were also a lot of coconut trees, due to which there was always shade. Malinga and his friends used to take full advantage of the coolness of this shade. He played cricket on the beach for hours. Due to the sand spreading on the beach, he had to throw a lot of force throwing the ball.
There was a tennis soft ball to play, which was difficult to play with. If the ball could not be eaten on the beach, then Malinga tried to throw the yorker. His yorker throwing started from here. It took a lot of effort to throw it. This was the reason, which became a different style of throwing his ball. The need to force and throw the ball made him a fast and deadly bowler.
To complete his education, Malinga was admitted to Vidya Tilak School. After getting a scholarship in the fifth grade, he got admission to Vidya Lok School and started his career there. It was in this school that Champaka Ramnayake saw Malinga playing cricket and he was very impressed with his talent. Malinga was like a diamond that was yet to be carved. Champaka did this by enrolling him in the Cheek Cricket Club.
Now Malinga was ready to climb the ladder of success. First, Malinga was asked to improve his bowling action. But because of this both his accuracy and speed decreased. Champaka understood that Malinga would be able to bowl the best with his natural style. That is why he was asked to play in his old style. Due to the different style, he was named “Slinga Malinga”.
Gradually Malinga became famous and was given a chance to play in Test cricket against Australia in 2004. In his very first match, he created a panic with 6 wickets. The Australian team was also impressed by his performance. Adam Gilchrist presented him with a stump in the dressing room. The same year he got a chance to play ODI. He was well-appreciated there too. He was now Sri Lanka’s deadliest bowler. Almost every ball of his was a dangerous yorker. They also came to be called “tow-crushers”.
In 2005 Stephen Fleming asked umpires Steve Buckner and Darrel Heyer to take off their tie because the umpire’s tie and ball were the same color and Malinga was bowling so fast that Stephen did not see the ball. Seeing Malinga’s outstanding performance, he was made the captain of Sri Lanka. He is the first bowler to have taken four wickets on four consecutive balls. In the IPL, he plays for the Mumbai Indians and his name is the highest wicket-taking title. In 2011, Malinga retired from Test cricket.
