CRICKET: Malinga likely to miss Champions League, wife expecting baby
2013-08-26 08:56:31 | (0 Comments)
Lasith Malinga is almost certain to miss both Sri Lanka's tour of Zimbabwe and the Champions League, due to personal commitments.
Sri Lanka Cricket confirmed they have received Malinga's leave request, while Mumbai Indians have also been informed of his plans.
Malinga will be with his wife and family during his time off, as they expect their second child late in September.
He will forego 20 per cent of his annual Indian Premier League salary if he misses the Champions League, in addition to losing out on match fees.
Malinga was involved in the just concluded inaugural Caribbean Premier League Twenty20, which was won by Chris Gayle’s Jamaica Tallawahs.
Malinga played two matches for the Guyana Amazon Warriors franchise, including Saturday's final against the Jamaica Tallawahs franchise.
