Colombo: Mar 5, 2013

Sri Lanka fast bowler Lasith Malinga is likely to face an inquiry over his rude behaviour with the media, an official of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said on Tuesday.

Malinga, who was approached by the media for comments over the payment dispute which had erupted between the SLC and 23 national players recently, behaved in a rude manner with the media personnel outside the SLC headquarters in Colombo.

He was seen on a local television reacting in an unwarranted fashion.

A Board official said that Malinga’s unruly behaviour will be investigated and the inquiry report would be forwarded to the Executive Committee of SLC.
