Malinga in top bracket

Speedster Lasith Malingaof Mumbai Indians, has been placed in the top bracket of USD 100,000 in the central contracts announced by Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) here.

The fast bowler figures alongside Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara, Tillakaratne Dilshan and Thilan Samaraweera in the central contracts, that will come into effect from June this year.

Malinga, however, will be only be entitled to USD 40,000 as his appearance would be limited to the Twenty20 and one-day cricket. The 28-year-old had earlier last year retired from the longer version.

Malinga, who is said to be on a USD 1.1 million contract with the Mumbai Indians, had last month hinted that he may not sign up with SLC, though, he would continue to make himself available for national selections.
