We need to settle this once and for all: did malinga jerk?

No He don't. One of the best bowlers alongside steyn, McGrath, Anderson, mohammad amir. Trent boult.
 
He was a great bowler, but now there are lots of great bowlers, for example Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj from India.

How is that even bowling?
He walks to the pitch as if he is going to bowl or something.
Suddenly slings the ball.
Its sling bowling bruh!
No, slinging is not bowling.

I Will leave it to the professionals on the field, not to me. I am not even a cricket expert let alone the one who can decide if he slings or not, I just enjoy cricket and the swinging yorkers he bowled were the finest. He wouldn't have survived this long if that was the case.


Here is comment by a cricket expert on quora though -

"According to bowling rules provided by ICC an illegal bowling action is an action in which the bowler’s elbow extends by an amount of more than 15 degrees between their arm reaching the horizontal and the ball being released.

Lasith Malinga has an unorthodox roundarm action which is awkward but his bowling action is legal as his arm does not straighten from a bent position as he bowls and also it does not violates the rules of ICC.

Unorthodox, authentic, enjoyable, destructive, nightmare for the batters but most importantly it’s LEGAL."
 
Definately , the bowling style is different and of course maybe he got extra advantages.
