Sri Lanka leave Malinga out of Nidahas Trophy


Despite impressive returns in domestic cricket, fast bowler Lasith Malinga has failed to force his way back into Sri Lanka's T20 squad for the upcoming Nidahas Trophy.

Sri Lanka's selectors named a 20-member preliminary pool ahead of the tournament but the 34-year-old Malinga wasn't part of their plans.

Chairman of Selectors Graham Labrooy says that it is't the end of the road for Malinga, and that he is certainly in their plans for 2019 World Cup, but they want him to play more games.

He said they want him to play the current T20 competition as well as the one-day tournament after that.
