Sri Lanka registered 133 runs over Ireland in the 15th match of the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifiers 2023 on Sunday at Bulawayo. During commentary, two commentators, Mitchell McClenaghan and Niall O’Brien, mentioned Sri Lankan legend fast bowler Lasith Malinga, and Naill O’Brien asked Mitchell McClenaghan, Who is more popular, Jasprit Bumrah or Lasith Malinga? Who got the biggest cheer from the crowd?
Lasith Malinga’s Mumbai Indians teammate Mitchell McClenaghan replied to that and said that Lasith Malinga got a bigger cheer from the crowd and that it was a special moment being in the field and listening to the chant at Wankhede Stadium. Also, he said that he is lucky to play with Lasith Malinga, and never has to face him.
