IPL 2019 – How Lasith Malinga polished a new weapon to snare Andre Russell

Lasith Malinga worked on his fitness, got back in the Sri Lanka squad, and proved to Mumbai Indians there was still something left in the tank. He is back on MI’s roster this season, and with Jasprit Bumrah has extended their successful partnership.

  1. Must be said that Malinga has done really well to get past his injuries and get back some fitness and got back to some good bowling. He did well for SL in SA and has had a decent IPL. No fast bowler is expected to be as effective at the tail end of their career but Malinga this year has done well.

    I thought his tactics to Russell was yet another master stroke on par with what was worked out against India in the t20 WC semifinal. Credit where its due folks, me included were highly critical of Malinga and rightfully so as he was injured and bowling poorly. But the great man is back with some form and showing what a legend he is.
