Lasith Malinga has been left out of the 15-man squad for the upcoming three-match Twenty20 International series against India, Sri Lanka Cricket announced on Friday, reports

Speaking to reporters, the selectors insisted that the former T20I captain had been rested and not dropped, along with Suranga Lakmal, Sri Lanka’s best fast bowler on the tour of India so far.

Malinga, 34, has been struggling with form and fitness with his pace dropping ever since he made a comeback into the national setup earlier this year after a knee injury had forced him out of the game for almost a year. He was earlier not considered for the One-Day Internationals in India as well despite making himself available.
