‘Kya farak padta hai bowling toh Ambani karega’ – Fans react as Lasith Malinga returns in Mumbai Indians as bowling coach for IPL 2024



It won’t be wrong to say that Mumbai Indians (MI) are the most successful franchise in the history of the Indian Premier League. The team have won 5 IPL title under the veteran Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma. However, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) equalled their record as they also won their 5th IPL title earlier this year.

Meanwhile, former legendary Sri Lankan fast bowler Lasith Malinga, who has played an important role in almost all of MI’s IPL title victories, has replaced Shane Bond as MI’s bowling coach for the 17th edition of the cash-rich league. Malinga’s return to the MI camp will be very beneficial for all the young players of Mumbai Indians.

Brilliant opportunity for MI’s young pacer to learn more

Malinga has won 4 IPL titles with MI (2013,2015,2017 and 2019). Unfortunately, he was ruled out of the 2020 season due to an injury and hence he failed to become a part of the team in the 5th title of MI. The legendary bowler then joined Rajasthan Royals as their bowling coach for the 2022 and 2023 editions.

The presence and guidance of Malinga will help young bowlers like Akash Madhwal and other bowlers who performed brilliantly in the 16th edition of the league. Malinga can also help MI’s batters who were struggling to bat against CSK’s star pacer Matheesha Pathirana who has the same bowling action as Malinga. MI will also try to add new
