Sri Lankan speedster Lasith Malinga who turned 34 on Monday was flooded with B'day wishes from cricket fans all over the world and fellow cricketers.

The paceman who is certainly towards the fag end of his career was recalled to the Lankan outfit after two years because Sri Lankan cricket is in dire straits after the exit of Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardena.

India's rising allrounder Hardik Pandya joined the cricketing fraternity in sending over his wishes to the yorker specialist. In the tweet that Hardik Pandya posted, he touted the Sri Lankan pacer as the ‘king of yorkers’.

Malinga is feared by batsmen from all across the world for his variations and yorkers. He can literally bowl yorkers at will, a great weapon to have in your armoury.

Apart from Pandya, Indian cricketer Akash Chopra also wished Slinger Mallinga on his Bday. The International Cricket Council also sent its Bday greetings to Mallinga, highlighting the contribution of the seamer to Sri Lankan cricket.
