the source tracking the development, added.

Because of his frequent knee injury problems, Malinga has his own special training programs.

In the meantime, the 32-year-old all-rounder Isuru Udana is all set to leave for UAE on Friday.

“Yes, he has sought the permission and the SLC has no issue to grant him the permission.”

Isuru will be representing the Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise and will get the experience to play with Team India skipper Virat Kohli and South Africa’s AB de Villiers.

Legendary cricketer Muttiah Muralitharan, who will be the bowling mentor for the Sunrisers Hyderabad team will leave for UAE on September 4.
