Malinga to be named Fast Bowling Coach amidst concerns

The High-Profile Cricket Advisory Committee has recommended to Sri Lanka Cricket’s Executive Committee to name former fast bowling great Lasith Malinga as a Consultant Coach of the national cricket team. Malinga’s appointment will be one off with him overseeing the upcoming tour of Australia where the national cricket team will play five T-20 Internationals.

  1. I think this is a great idea, considering the fact that Nuwan Thushara is in the squad. One of the weaknesses in Thushara’s bowling (as we saw in the recent matches his percentage of wide deliveries was very high) is controlling the line of his deliveries due to his square arm action. Malinga is the only fast bowling coach who can correct this mistake. It will also be the best scenario to do that when he is bowling in faster pitches in Australia (rather than on slow wickets in SL). Although majority of the executive committee members are not supporting Malinga’s assignment, Mahela has used his super technical coaching abilities to appoint Malinga as a Consultant Fast Bowling coach. Hats off to Mahela for his great work.
