Instead of becoming counterparts of two countries, Lasith Malinga and Rubel Hossain are playing as team mates in BPL 2017 in Rangpur Riders. As like any other fan in the cricket world, the Bangladeshi pacer is an appreciator of Malinga’s death bowling and said he is eager to learn the techniques from him.
“Everyone knows about Malinga’s performance. His death bowling charms me. I’m always eager to learn from him and now I’m trying to learn how he deliver such Yorkers in last overs. I’m also practicing in nets,” Rubel Hossain said.
Rubel also said, “Malinga grips the ball a bit differently in slowers. I’m working on that. After some day, I’ll try that grip by myself.”
“He does not use one of his fingers that he uses in all stock deliveries. I’ve tried that but have faced some difficulties. But I believe I can learn that with much trials,” Rubel added.
