Fast bowler Lasith Malinga has again been overlooked by Sri Lankan selectors for the upcoming three-match T20 series in India.
Sri Lanka have dropped fast bowler Lasith Malinga from their squad of 15 players for the upcoming three-match Twenty20 series against India.
It is the second successive series for which the 34-year-old fast bowler has been overlooked. He last played for Sri Lanka in the only T20 match against India last July and was dropped for the one-day internationals as well as T20 games against Pakistan played in the United Arab Emirates.
Malinga was also not considered for the current one-day international series in India.
The team, led by Thisara Perera, will play three T20 matches against India starting December 20.
