Malinga will play in Super Provincial and return to IPL

Sri Lanka’s one-day fast bowler Lasith Malinga is due to return from his IPL commitments with Mumbai Indians and lead Galle in the Super Provincial limited-over cricket tournament starting on April 4.

The veteran cricketer is currently representing Mumbai Indians but is due to return on April 3 to participate in the Super Provincial which will be the criterion for selection of the Sri Lanka squad of 15 for the upcoming World Cup in England.

Chief selector Ashantha de Mel said that as Sri Lanka Cricket has given Malinga a No Objection Certificate (NOC) he will return to play in the IPL after the Super Provincial tournament.

Thus Malinga will not be part of the training and practice schedules the Lankan team will be holding leading upto the World Cup.

“He will be training and practicing with the Mumbai Indians that will be good enough,” said De Mel. - ST
