Sri Lanka bowling spearhead Lasith Malinga has been sweating like a fitness geek in gym and turned amazingly fit, after he faced a surprise snub from the ODI team for upcoming series against Pakistan.
He played the ODI and T20 series against India, but as new selectors came to the scene, he found himself out of favour for the Pakistan series.
Malinga, known for his unique action and toe-crushing Yorkers, returned to international cricket during Champions trophy in June following a knee injury that kept him out of the team for almost one and half year.
But, he has largely been sporadic in his bowling performance since return, and managed only 10 wickets from 13 ODIs.
It has learnt, that the new selection committee, led by Graeme Labrooy, has decided to move on from Malinga.
Though, after the snub, Malinga once again made it clear that he wants to play at least until 2019 world cup, and work hard on his game and fitness to regain his place in the team.
These Fotos of Malinga proves, the most unorthodox fast bowler of cricket history is in no mood to give up, yet!
