Lasith Malinga tops the list of most wickets in IPL with 154 wickets in 110 matches. He is ahead by 20 wickets from Amit Mishra who ranks second. Malinga has been a regular member of the Mumbai Indians (MI) family. He went unsold in this years IPL auction but was bagged by MI as their bowling mentor. He has won many matches for the team with the ball and played an important role MI’s title victory over the years.

MI’s official twitter handle posted a video of Mitchell McClenaghan and Shane Bond talking about Malinga’s mentoring skills.

 

MI have had a poor start to their IPL season having lost four of their five matches. All their matches have gone to the last over except the one they won against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). The major concerns for them currently is the lack of scoring runs in the death overs. Can they bounce back strongly like they always have?
