Previously, CSK star batsman Suresh Raina missed out of IPL due to personal reasons and now, within a span of couple of days another star player choose to drop out of IPL and this time it is Mumbai Indians star bowler Lasith Malinga.
Lasith Malinga is the finest of all the bowlers around the world and is well known for bowling nail biting yorkers, which made batsmen tremble on their feet. He was given the title, '' Yorker King''.
He has been representing Mumbai Indians since the very first edition of the IPL. He is the leading wicket taker in IPL with 170 wickets in his account and with an bowling average of 19.80 and an economy of just over 7. These are excellent stats considering the fact that IPL is a T20 format and most of the pitches are batting tracks.
Lasith Malinga has been a match winner for the team, providing crucial breakthroughs when ever he was given the ball. He is the most trust worthy bowler for Rohit Sharma(captain of MI) and Malinga has never let him down. It's very unfortunate for MI to loose a player like him. However, Australian speedster James Pattinson has been announced as the replaced for the veteran.
