Bowling on borrowed time: How Lasith Malinga and Hamid Hassan are taking it to the death

Two mighty fast bowlers may be past their primes, but their fading glories are still the best on offer to Sri Lanka and Afghanistan.

For almost two years Lasith Malinga played no ODIs, and few thought that he could ever be a significant part of the Sri Lankan ODI team again. But now he has come back, there have been moments such as his destruction of the England lower order in Dambulla. There was also the heroic last over for Mumbai in the IPL final. And he has just gone in the first round for the CPL draft.

But there are plenty of signs he is no longer the Malinga of old; he’s just old Malinga.
