Malinga leads the most wickets with yorkers in the 2019 world cup

Offerings from the younger, faster bowlers might have been flashier, but Lasith Malinga‘s are the yorkers you want to grow old with. They are still quick enough when required, deliciously slow when you need them to be, dipping deviously, and reverse-swinging not from side to side but right into the ground, such is the force generated by his singular action. Out of bowlers who have taken wickets from bona-fide yorkers – ones that pitch exactly in the blockhole, and not a few inches further up or down – no one has more dismissals this tournament than Malinga’s five.
