Lasith Malinga is scheduled to arrive in Sri Lanka on Tuesday, 11 June, following the scheduled World Cup match between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, to attend the funeral of his mother-in-law.

He is expected to join the team, anyway, before the team’s next World Cup game which will be played against Australia on Saturday, 15 June 15.

The remains of late Mrs. Kanthi Perera, Lasith’s mother-in-law, lie at the Barney Raymond Funeral Home at Colombo-8.

The final rites will take place on Thursday, 13 June at the Borella Cemetery.
