Malinga, who earned a cult following for his performances as a pacer with Mumbai Indians, joined Rajasthan as a bowling coach ahead of the 2022 edition of the tournament.
“We have watched people like Lasith and Kumar Sangakkara in action while growing up and admired the things they did on field. Lasith especially makes bowling look so easy. Now they are here to help youngsters like us in this team to understand their game better. Whatever chats we had with Lasith, he makes bowling look very simple and easy and that it gives a lot of clarity for every bowler in the side,” said Samson in the pre-season virtual press conference.
