Malinga mulls retirement, says mentally done with cricket

Friday, February 09, 2018

St Moritz (Switzerland): Sri Lanka speedster Lasith Malinga has hinted at possible retirement, saying that he is mentally done with international cricket now that his eventful IPL career is over.

Malinga was yesterday appointed as bowling mentor of Mumbai Indians.

The Sri Lankan has been the core of Mumbai Indians winning combination in the last decade. He has donned the prestigious Mumbai Indians jersey in 110 matches of the 157 games the franchise has played so far. "Mentally I am over with playing cricket. I don't think I will play anymore international cricket. I am planning to announce my retirement soon," Malinga told PTI during an exclusive interaction on the sidelines of the St Moritz Ice Cricket Challenge here. "I have not spoken to Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) but once I go back I will have to again go through domestic grind, see how my body responds. But now as my IPL career is also over and I am starting a new chapter with Mumbai Indians, I might not play again," he added.
