Lasith Malinga takes hat-tricks for fun at the highest level. As if three wickets in three balls isn’t achievement enough, he’s had two separate sequences of four wickets in four balls in international cricket. The rest of humanity (and that obviously doesn’t include Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan) has managed just one of those. In fact, Malinga has more hat-tricks in one ground (three at the R Premadasa stadium in Colombo) than most bowlers have in their entire careers.
So regular – and so inevitable when he goes on one of his yorker sprees – has it become that we’ve got enough to put together a quiz on his hat-tricks. Which of these batsmen has the slingshot dismissed as part of his hat-tricks, and which of them are just making up the numbers here? Give it a shot and let us know how many you got right.
