Support for ‘Slinga' Malinga

Mumbai: Many young fans who turned up at the Wankhede Stadium here Friday said they came to see their Indian Premier League (IPL) team Mumbai Indians pacer Lasith Malinga rather than his Sri Lanka team playing New Zealand in the World Cup.

Surprisingly, the crowds were milling outside the stadium a couple of hours before the start of play. Some of them said they came to cheer their Mumbai Indians fast bowler Malinga.

The 27-year old Sri Lankan has been nicknamed ‘Slinga Malinga' for his slinging bowling action and is quite popular among the youngsters with his curly blonde hair.

“We have come to see Malinga. He is very exciting to watch and one of our favourite Mumbai Indians players,” said one of the fans. — IANS
