Retirement of greats no excuse for poor ODI record – Malinga

Lasith Malinga has one request from his team in the ODIs against New Zealand: a good start. A good start to his captaincy, because following a 2017 in which almost everyone on the island seemed to captain Sri Lanka in ODIs, and a 2018 in which Angelo Mathews was controversially dumped from the leadership – and Dinesh Chandimal unceremoniously deposed two months later – Malinga has hopes of staying ODI captain until at least the end of the 2019 World Cup. Six-and-a-half months is not too much to ask, is it?
