By Parul Raina

Sri Lanka pacer will leave the team following their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 game against Bangladesh, today at Bristol, to show up to the funeral of his mother-in-law.

This time is extremely saddening and deeply emotional for all the Sri Lanka fans and those who support Malinga.

In this deeply dejected phase, all that Malinga will need is support and love from all his fans across the globe so that he gains strength and confidence to play to his full potential.

According to a release from Sri Lanka Cricket, “Malinga will leave the team following Sri Lanka’s World Cup Game against Bangladesh, which will be played today, as his Mother-In-Law has passed away.”
