Lasith Malinga just not comparable, his experience will be missed, says Rohit Sharma

Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma on Thursday conceded that “incomparable” Sri Lankan pace legend Lasith Malinga, who has opted out of this year’s IPL, will be severely missed by his defending champion team given his “unbelievable” past performances.

The 37-year-old Malinga, who is IPL’s highest wicket-taker with 170 scalps to his credit, has pulled out citing personal reasons in a major blow to the four-time champions. MI will take on the Chennai Super Kings in this season’s lung-opener on September 19 here.
