Lasith Malinga
Lasith Malinga is an accomplished bowler at various stages of the innings

Admittedly, Malinga has serious issues with his fitness and there are question marks over his recent relevance. The last time he played an ODI was against West Indies in November 2015. However, completely ruling out experienced players like Lasith Malinga amounts to nothing but imprudence.

The menace and efficiency of yore were seen in spurts during the 2017 edition of the Indian Premier League wherein the fast bowler picked up 11 wickets from 12 matches for Mumbai Indians. At 33 and counting, he is rapidly approaching the final phase of his international career. The prospect of leading an inexperienced bowling attack demands Malinga be at his very best. Factoring his immense experience into account, the tournament could see him rise to the occasion.
