Malinga (6/7) reminds everyone why he’s the deadliest wicket taker in the world (Video)

Share this:FacebookTwitterGoogle+Email

Last night’s Big Bash encounter at the WACA confirmed something few have forgotten – Lasith Malinga is head and shoulders the deadliest pace bowler in limited overs cricket. His remarkable figures of 6/7 are the second best in the history of the format, behind Arul Suppiah who got 6 wickets for 5 runs  for Somerset against Glamorgan back in 2011.

The most fascinating aspect of his performance was the absolute control of the slower ball yorker – surely one of hardest deliveries to master in the game today. The Perth Scorchers were not just failing to get bat on them, they were beaten all ends up à la Chris Cairns vs Chris Read circa 1999.

You could be forgiven for thinking that England do not stand a chance of defending their World T20 crown in Sri Lanka starting this week. But if the 3rd T20 against South Africa confirmed anything, it’s that England have some young strokemakers that pack a punch. Alex Hales and Jonny Bairstow have shown they are big hitters of a cricket ball already. There’s now one more to add to that list.

Jos Buttler, the aggressive wicket keeper-batsman from Somerset, showed his credentials by hammering Wayne Parnell for 32 in one over including 3 sixes and two scooped fours.
