Could this be Silas Malinga?

Third Man is most grateful to the Secretary of the Mary le Bone Cricket Club for sending him this picture which he believes may be none other than Silas Malinga who played for the Squire’s XI against Fifteen Men of Kent some years ago at the Home Park Oval. 

At full speed, accuracy was a problem and volunteers were required to stand in the slips.  Bowling to a field of four slips, two leg slips and three long stops he struck terror into the hearts of batsmen and fieldsmen alike.

 As they say, “What goes round, comes round.”
