Lasith Malinga announced that he is working on a new ball to launch in the T20 World Cup this year in Sri Lanka. While Lasith announced this, Damith Samarakoon a Sri Lankan who writes about Cricket has voiced out his thinking from the article "Lasith's New ball" through his blogspot and we thought of sharing it for the cyber community to read and review.
"Lasith Malinga is set to unveil a new delivery which has sent world cricket in to pandemonium. Calamitously, we were less than enthused. Which naturally surprised us. This caused to have a serious talk with ourselves. Which we hate because we are generally sure we are ri ght. Also, it looks odd when you talk to yourself.
We went into an almost Buddhist like self reflection state. Slowly the corroded metal we have for a brain starte d to churn it self over and as we realised why are not that excited about Malinga anymore. True he still has super star makings. Any Sri Lankan with blonde hair is at least worth a casual mention. But Malinga has separated himself from the pack and become a self professed freelance cricketer. That is all well and good for him. But not us"
