Sri Lanka pacer Lasith Malinga will leave the team following today’s ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 game against Bangladesh at Bristol, to attend the funeral of his mother-in-law.

A release from Sri Lanka Cricket said Malinga will leave the team following Sri Lanka’s World Cup Game against Bangladesh.

The veteran player is expected to re-join the team, before the team’s next World Cup game, which will be played against Australia on the 15th June, 2019.

Sri Lanka faces Bangladesh in a must-win game today.

Although persistent rain is predicted over Bristol skies during the day, a shorten game is likely to benefit the misfiring Sri Lankans.

The game is slated to get underway at 1500 Sri Lanka time.
