Few in top-flight cricket deliver the blockhole yorker as precisely as Lasith Malinga. With his slinky, round-arm action, the Sri Lankan stalwart could hit the base of the middle-stump and leave well-set batsmen in awe of his accuracy.
Malinga plied his pole-shattering trade for the Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League, and showed a lack of empathy for the toes of the man standing 22 yards away. His slower cutter and tramline kissers were as effective as his strongest suit, the inch-perfect yorker.
