Riding on pacer Lasith Malinga’s five-wicket haul, Sri Lanka on Saturday regained the Asia Cup trophy with a comfortable five-wicket victory over defending champions Pakistan.
The Sri Lankan pacer pegged Pakistan back as he demolished the rival top order with his fierce pace. Malinga has always been a dominant force for Sri Lanka. You know him for his low-slung action, accurate yorkers or his quirky hairstyle yet how many of you know about the woman behind his success?
It’s Matara girl Tanya Perera, the lovely wife of the cricketer. Lasith first met Tanya at a hotel in Hikkaduwa in Sri Lanka.
