Sri Lanka fast bowler Lasith Malinga has retired from franchise cricket, his Indian Premier League side Mumbai Indians announced on Wednesday. Malinga, who is known for his dangerous yorkers, informed Mumbai Indians of his decision earlier this month, the IPL franchise said in a statement. Malinga said that he had made up his mind after discussion with his family. “After discussing with family, I think now is the right time to retire from all franchise cricket. The Pandemic situation and the restrictions on travel will make it difficult for me given my personal circumstances to participate fully in franchise cricket for the next year and therefore it is best to make this decision now,” Malinga is quoted as saying in the statement.
