About Lasith Malinga (from Wikipedia Page)

Separamadu Lasith Malinga is a Sri Lankan cricketer.

He was the captain of the Sri Lankan 2014 T20 World Cup winning side.

One of the most successful limited-overs bowlers of all time, Malinga’s unorthodox action and dipping slower ball yorkers are credited with much of his success.

He is best known for his ability to take consecutive wickets, with in-swinging yorkers and is the only bowler in the world to have two World Cup hat-tricks.

The only bowler to have taken three hat-tricks in ODIs, and one of only two players to have taken four wickets in four consecutive balls in any form of international cricket.

He is also the first bowler to take five hat-tricks across all formats of international cricket, and holds the record for most hat-tricks in international cricket.
