Lasith Malinga in IPL 2009

Lasith Malinga, the Sri Lankan playing for Mumbai Indians in IPL 2009 has been a real sensation. He has so far become one of the top wicket-takers in IPL 2009 with 11 wickets in just 5 matches at an unbelievable economy of 4.36. He has been taking wickets every 10 balls and after giving 7.25 runs. This feat by a player who has been out from international cricket for so long due to injury is just magic.

The slinging bowling action of Malinga was so popular during the 2007 world cup in which he was one of the highest wicket takers. He suddenly disappeared from world cricket due to injury at the moment when he was rocking. Now, the performance in IPL has opened the doors for Sri Lankan team. There is a great chance of him being the highest wicket-taker for IPL 2009.

The combination of Zaheer Khan and Malinga has really worked for Mumbai Indians. The bowling is so tight that they won the match against KKR yesterday after scoring just a moderate target. He has proved himself to be the correct choice for Mumbai Indians who lacked fast bowlers in previous season.
