Malinga is IPL s most successful bowler and has been the key to MI s success over the years. MI made the smooth transition from Malinga to <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/jasprit-bumrah" target="_blank">Jasprit Bumrah</a> in the last two years. Bumrah, who has been a part of MI s setup since 2013, is now the leader of the pack. <p></p> <p></p>He has learned the tricks from Malinga, only to replace him as MI s premier bowler and the Sri Lankan is very proud of the young Indian pacer. In a recent interview with <i>Hindustan Times</i>, Malinga lauded Bumrah for his rise in international cricket and ability to handle pressure. <p></p> <p></p> He has experience, he knows (how to handle) pressure, so many people at the Wankhede Stadium are cheering (for him). He has played with so many good players; he bowls in those challenging periods. He has learned a lot, and that is why he has achieved what he has, said Malinga. <p></p> <p></p>[link-to-post url="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/lasith-malinga-mentally-done-with-cricket-684662"][/link-to-post] <p></p> <p></p>Tagged as one of the finest limited-overs bowlers, Bumrah eventually made his Test debut earlier this year. Making his debut in the Cape Town Test, Bumrah claimed 14 wickets from three Tests at 25.21, playing a vital role in India s win at Johannesburg. Pacers are prone to injuries and playing all formats takes toll. Malinga hopes Bumrah to play for at least 10 years without injuries. <p></p> <p></p> Now he is in the Test team, I am really happy that he got a five-wicket haul in South Africa. This means he has now arrived in world cricket. I want him to play, maybe, another 10 years, without any injuries. I want him to play consistently for India, Malinga added. <p></p> <p></p>Malinga, who is struggling to make it to the Sri Lankan side, went unsold in IPL 2018 auctions. However, he will return to MI as their bowling mentor.
