In some breaking news coming in which is also miserable news for all Mumbai Indians fans, Lasith Malinga is all set to miss the first few weeks of the IPL 2020 due to his father’s ill-health.
The right handed fast bowler from Mumbai Indians wants to be with his father and rightly so at a time when he needs him the most.
Separamadu Milton, his father, is due to undergo a massive surgery post which the speedster is expected to join the rest of the squad in the UAE.
This will certainly be a huge blow for the Mumbai Indians as the highest wicket-taker in the history of the IPL will certainly be missed. He is a vital clog in Rohit Sharma’s plans and his absence will certainly be missed by his franchise. Meanwhile, Lasith will continue training in Colombo while he will also be on hospital duty for his father post his training hours.
In the absence of Malinga, there would be certainly be more pressure on the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Bolult & Mitchell McClenaghan who would be looking to raise their game and play their part to perfection. While the master is away, a lot will be expected from Jasprit Bumrah to execute those yorkers perfectly.
