Milne likely to miss IPL, uncertainty over Malinga s participation too: Mahela

Mumbai Indians will most certainly miss the services of injured New Zealand pacer Adam Milne in the 12th edition of the IPL and a cloud doubt is also hanging over Lasith Malinga s participation, said head coach Mahela Jayawardene. The former Sri Lanka batsman, ahead of their season-opener against Delhi Capitals, said that Milne has not yet recovered from an ankle injury. We were waiting for his (Milne s) fitness report. He had an injury four weeks back while playing a game, so we needed to wait for his recovery and his progress, said Jayawardane. We had a report two days back saying that he is not 100 per cent (fit) and he might not be able to be part of the extended IPL, so we have realised that we need a replacement. We are considering that. But we have got enough resources (for now), added the former Sri Lanka captain. Malinga too, due to his commitment with the Sri Lankan team which is currently engaged in a bilateral Twenty20 series in South Africa, is unlikely to join the team
