The selectors of the Sri Lankan national team will soon sit down with Lasith Malinga for talks on the upcoming T20 World Cup 2021 issue. The selectors will discuss with him about considering him in the 2021 T20 World Cup. Lasith Malinga last played for Sri Lanka in March 2020. After that Malinga did not play competitive cricket anymore.
Despite announcing his retirement from franchise cricket ahead of this year’s IPL, Malinga has yet to retire from the International Twenty20. However, he is still ready to play for the national team.
“I have retired from Test and ODI cricket but not from T20,” Lasith Malinga recently told The Morning. I would also like to know with great interest how the selectors want to take the services of a senior cricketer like me into the national team. I have proved more than once in my career that I played well for the country after a long break.
The chairman of the Sri Lankan selection committee on the Malinga issue, told the same newspaper, “We will talk to Lasith Malinga soon. He is being considered for our future T20 tour. This includes the October T20 World Cup.
He added, ‘We should always remember that he is one of the best bowlers in our country, even in his current form. His record speaks for itself. There are two T20 World Cups in the next two years. We will discuss our plan with them in the next few days.
