Lasith Malinga said : “In this kind of situation, we didn’t get a partnership. We lost five wickets early but we need to come back strongly in the next match. With the dew it’s hard to bowl in such conditions. We needed partnerships but we didn’t get that. That never helps,” External link

Lasith Malinga added ( about Angelo Mathews ) : “The top-four batsmen have to get big runs like 70-80 runs and others have to play around them. Angelo (Mathews) and Dhananjaya showed how it is easy to play in these conditions. We need to get that mental preparation and their own hunger to get runs and that is what the top-order lacked in this tournament. Because people (players) are thinking it is 20 overs, like we have to hit every single ball. Partnership is very important and then they can catch up in the end.. No pressure now, we’re given all the freedom. I hope they’ll perform well in the next couple of months,” External link

He has got a different bowling action, he pushes the ball in, and can swing the ball both ways. He is good with the new ball, but I like him with the old ball, and that's why he can fill the shoes of Malinga and can bowl at death overs. He can bowl at 140kmph and zoom the ball in at the batsman's feet. He is bowling the yorkers consistently, and there are very few bowlers like him" External link

The World Cup is only a few months away but more importantly is that we bond as a team, we win cricket matches together and we get to understand each and everyone’s game, so that when we end up in a difficult situation, we know exactly how to get out. So yes, the World T20 in October is the focus but we firstly have to deal with what is in front of us,” “You have to play what’s in front of you. They have world class bowlers in their line-up. Lasith [Malinga], first couple overs, he was brilliant. So, you have to look at opportunities where you can score. Next game we may try to go at the seamers, we don’t know. At the end of the day, you have to play what is in front of you and the situation dictates how you play. That’s what we’re going to do. We’re not going to actually plan to target any bowlers in particular. We’re just going to play cricket how it needs to be played; hopefully we tick the right boxes and in the end we can be smiling” External link

Brett Lee said ( about Lasith Malinga ) : "I have been Bumrah's fan since he burst into the scene some years ago. He has got a different bowling action, he pushes the ball in, and can swing the ball both ways. He is good with the new ball, but I like him with the old ball, and that's why he can fill the shoes of Malinga and can bowl at death overs. He can bowl at 140kmph and zoom the ball in at the batsman's feet. He is bowling the yorkers consistently, and there are very few bowlers like him" External link

Kieron Pollard said ( about Lasith Malinga ) : “For us, we’re confident and humble. Humbly trying to find a way to get back our brand of cricket. The World Cup is only a few months away but more importantly is that we bond as a team, we win cricket matches together and we get to understand each and everyone’s game, so that when we end up in a difficult situation, we know exactly how to get out. So yes, the World T20 in October is the focus but we firstly have to deal with what is in front of us,” “You have to play what’s in front of you. They have world class bowlers in their line-up. Lasith [Malinga], first couple overs, he was brilliant. So, you have to look at opportunities where you can score. Next game we may try to go at the seamers, we don’t know. At the end of the day, you have to play what is in front of you and the situation dictates how you play. That’s what we’re going to do. We’re not going to actually plan to target any bowlers in particular. We’re just going to play cricket how it needs to be played; hopefully we tick the right boxes and in the end we can be smiling” External link
