Lasith Malinga joined the Mumbai Indians squad after much speculation over his availability. However, the veteran pacer is expected to skip a few more games to play for Galle in Sri Lanka’s Super Provincial one-day tournament. The four-team event also featuring Colombo, Kandy and Dambulla is supposed to serve as Sri Lanka’s World Cup trials. It is scheduled from April 4 to 11.
Malinga wants to participate in the domestic competition as he hopes to lead the team in the showpiece event in England.
