Lasith Malinga, the Rajasthan Royals' fast bowling coach, believes his side has a wonderful pace attack with a solid combination of veteran foreign players, real Indian quicks, and youthful players. The Royals have hired Malinga as their new fast bowling coach ahead of IPL 2022, after he collected 546 wickets in 340 international matches for Sri Lanka across three formats and led the team to the 2014 ICC T20 World Cup victory. "Our tempo attack, in my opinion, is terrific. You have seasoned international players like Boult and Coulter-Nile, with whom I've previously collaborated "According to a press release, Malinga said.
"Then we've got genuine Indian fast bowlers in Prasidh (Krishna) and (Navdeep) Saini, who have proven themselves at the highest level, and some new faces in Anunay Singh, Kuldeep Sen and Kuldip Yadav.
"In T20 cricket, I think little margins really matter, and I'm here to guide them to deliver their best in all situations," he added.
The 38-year-old, who is also the IPL's leading wicket-taker, said he is enjoying his new role in the new franchise.
The veteran, who has won the IPL four times with Mumbai, also discussed what he believes is the most crucial thing to accomplish when chasing a title.
"I think every team is equally strong and everyone in the team is equally valued. But the most crucial thing is how we understand the game, and the situations within a game.
"So, what I want to get out of our bowlers is to improve their thinking pattern, and help them understand the situations better," he expressed.
