#MeToo: Cricketer Lasith Malinga accused of sexual harassment during IPL

As the #MeToo movement gathering pace in India, the 35-year-old Sri Lankan cricketer Lasith Malinga is the latest name to come under the scanner.

Indian playback singer Chinmayi Sripaada shared a post on Twitter where she put up the anonymous woman’s post, naming, ‘Cricketer Lasith Malinga’ since the alleged victim did not name the cricketer in her statement.

She shared a post recalling an incident where the cricketer sexually assaulted a woman in his hotel room at Mumbai a few years back during the Indian Premier League (IPL) season.
