WHO WANTED MALINGA BROUGHT INTO THE TEAM?

Mystery surrounded over the surprise inclusion of the injured fast bowler Lasith Malinga who eventually returned back to the country without playing a single match in the ongoing ICC World Twenty20 Cricket Tournament in India after declared unfit to continue.


Malinga himself was clueless as to why he was included in the World Cup T20 Squad when it was obvious he would not be able to participate in a single game, and rumours are now spreading as that he was included on the influence of a Dubai based Indian Company who wanted star fast bowler for their marketing activities.


Malinga was nursing an injury, which he sustained prior to the Asia Cup and it is said to have that Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) had neglected doctor's advices when they included Malinga to the team knowing he won't be able to play at-least a single match.
Earlier, the Selection Committee entrusted the captaincy to him for the Asia Cup, knowing he had not fully recovered from his injury where he was able to play only one game.


On his way to Kolkata, India on 15 March, Malinga told reporters that he requested a replace-ment for him in the Asia Cup where SLC did not respond, but instead he was once again included in the T20 World Cup Squad against doctor's advice.
