Sri Lankan vice captain Mahela Jayawardena has revealed that fast bowler Lasith Malinga had to miss Sunday’s match against Canada because of a back strain. "We do not want any risk with him," he said at the post-match press conference, when asked if Malinga was rested for the match.
Jayawardena was certain that the interim rest period between matches will be to Malinga’s advantage and that he will play the next match. "He should be ok for the next match against Pakistan. That is an important match and we want our best team for that match," he said.
