The advent of T20 has given rise to mystery spinners and knuckle balls among others. The IPL, every year, churns out a number of new talents who impress with their bowling skills.

1. LASITH MALINGA

The original yorker king of the IPL, Lasith Malinga will be sorely missed by Mumbai Indians and the fans in general. The bowler with a slinging action had variety in his yorkers too.

Irrespective of how tough the situation was, Mumbai knew they could look up to Malinga. And, more often than not, the Lankan legend hit bulls-eye.

Lasith Malinga’s IPL numbers:
