Ever since he debuted in 2004 against the United Arab Emirates, Malinga has played 225 ODIs and his unusual style of bowling made him a formidable bowler in the limited-overs cricket.

Apart from hi illustrious career for the country, Malinga has contributed alot with his stints for Mumbai Indians. In the recently concluded season of Indian Premier League, Malinga had defended eight runs in the last over to help Mumbai Indians win their 4th IPL trophy beating Chennai Super Kings.
