Sri Lankan fast bowler Lasith Malinga will play his last ODI against Bangladesh on July 26. At present, he is among the great Sri Lankan Pacer and has also included his name in the world cricket veterans list. But very few people know that this bowler has not gone to his house for ten years and he is living his life in poverty due to the fear of the batsmen around the world. There is neither nameplate nor any bell at the door outside a one-storey house in Rathgama town, located in Gale. This looks like exactly the same house as a common villager. There is a loud sound of the opening of the clutches of wood. Stitching is becoming an important part of Swarna’s(Lasith Malinga’s mother) routine. She work to sew polyester clothes. She says that I myself also stitches clothes and my husband (Lasith Malinga’s father) does the same. It has become a part of our habit.
Swarna says that I have not seen Malinga for four months, but now we have got used to it. Malinga has not been here for ten years. Maybe he is too busy or he likes Colombo’s life. Where he is happy, we are also happy. Once I went to Colombo, where my third son also lives, but we are happy to stay here. I do not like the crowds of Colombo.
Lasith Malinga Photo Frame
There is also a photo frame decorated with photos of Lasith Malinga in a corner of the house. Malinga is wearing Sri Lanka’s practice kit in this. His mother tells that Malinga went on a tour. One night I suddenly remembered Malinga, I searched his picture in the whole house, but could not find. Then he had this photo in a magazine, which I tore and put it here.
