ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Lasith Malinga Teaches Marcus Stoinis The Art Of Bowling Slower Balls


Sri Lanka squared off against Australia for their warm-up match before the main event kicks off. Despite gaining a comfortable win against the Lankans, an Australian all-rounder seemed very inquisitive to learn a couple of tricks from a Sri Lankan veteran.

The players in the spotlight over here are the Aussie all-rounder Marcus Stoinis and the master from Lanka, Lasith Malinga. Even though Malinga not being a part of the match, it did not stop him from having an insightful conversation with the all-rounder.

Renowned for his ability to bowl lethal yorkers and foxy slower balls, he was seen giving Stonis tips to bowl the slower ones better. He had no qualms in demonstrating a few tricks that he had up his sleeve to Stonis, who too very keen to learn about it.

 “I wanted to give him tips – that’s how cricket moves forward. Whoever wants to know, I will help them. I’ll share tricks on how to bowl slow balls, which situation you will use it, why you want to use the slow one.” quoted Malinga in the post-match press conference.

The winners from the 1996 World Cup have been going through a rough patch with a lot of chopping and changing in the side as well as in the captaincy. Having lost both of their Warm-up matches, they will be looking to make a big impact in the league stages of the tournament.
