Quiz: Can you name all the captains Lasith Malinga has played under?

by Aadya Sharma 1 minute read

Lasith Malinga is set to bring down the curtains on his one-day international career on Friday, July 26, after the first of three matches against Bangladesh.

If all goes as planned, that will be Malinga’s 226th ODI. He played his first back in July 2004, against the United Arab Emirates in Dambulla, and has since spearheaded Sri Lanka’s attack despite plenty of flux surrounding him.

In all that change, he also played under a disproportionate number of captains in ODIs, apart from taking charge of the side himself for a while. Can you name them all?
