It all started when the ‘slinger’ announced his retirement from Test Cricket in 2011 in order to prolong his ODI and T20 career. His retirement decision, however, did not go well with the board, which in its statement said that Malinga does not care about the fate of national cricket and is concerned only with the “big bucks” that he makes playing in leagues like the IPL.
