The 38-year-old mentioned that his former Sri Lanka skipper Kumar Sangakkara, who is the Director of Cricket at Rajasthan Royals, offered him the role last year.

“It was actually last year that Kumar (Sangakkara) asked me if I was interested. But with COVID and all the bubble restrictions, I didn’t want to stay away from my family,” Malinga told.
