Sri Lankan fast bowler Lasith Malinga who announced his retirement from franchise cricket on Wednesday, is not on the National Selectors’ radar for the forthcoming tour of the West Indies where the visitors are due to play three T20Is along with two Tests and three One Day Internationals. 


According to highly placed sources at Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), the National Selectors, in consultation with the captain and coach, have sent a training squad of 35 players and Malinga’s name is missing.  


The 37-year-old right-arm fast bowler has announced his retirement from Test and ODI cricket but is yet to retire from the shortest format of the game.   


Only 17 or 18 players at a time will be part of the red-ball and white-ball teams during the West Indies tour. 
The red-ball players will return after the Tests and the white-ball players will join the squad in the second batch, it is understood.
