Slingers turning up the heat in South Africa

Three men, ready to hurl the white ball towards an unsuspecting batsman. For fans this has been one of the enduring images of the tournament so far. The slingers - Lasith Malinga (Mumbai Indians), Fidel Edwards (Deccan Chargers) and Kamran Khan (Rajasthan Royals) making batsmen hop, skip and jump with their slinging action.
