BIO: Separamadu Lasith Malinga is a Sri Lankan cricketer and present vice-captain of their T20 side. A specialist fast bowler, his trademark move is bowling with a rare round-arm action which is referred to as the, "Malinga Slinga". He is well known for his ability to take consecutive wickets: he is the first and only bowler in the world to have two World Cup hat-tricks, the first and only bowler to have taken three hat-tricks in ODIs and he is also the first, and currently the only, player to have taken four wickets in four consecutive balls in any form of international cricket. He made his Test debut on the July 1–3, 2004, at Darwin's Marrara Oval, taking 6 wickets in the match. He has developed into Sri Lanka's fastest Test bowler and a regular member of both their Test and One Day International sides. He announced his retirement from Test cricket on 22 April 2011 in order to prolong his career in One-Day and T20 cricket. Malinga debuted on July 11, 2004 when Sri Lanka played the United Arab Emirates at Dambulla. Since then he has become a regular member on the ODI squad. Malinga became a highlight during the 2007 Cricket World Cup, when on March 28, 2007, against South Africa he became the first ever player to take four wickets in four consecutive balls in international cricket. During the 2011 Cricket World Cup, Malinga took his second career hat-trick in Sri Lanka's match against Kenya. In August 2011, he managed yet another hat-trick, against Australia, to become the first man to take three hat-tricks in ODI cricket. Malinga plays for Indian Premier League (IPL) team Mumbai Indians. He won the Purple Cap award (most wickets) in the fourth season of Indian Premier League with 28 scalps in 16 matches. In the 2011 Champions League Twenty20, he was the highest wicket taker in the tournament and won the golden wicket for this performance and won the award for the player of the tournament.
