Sri Lankan paceman Lasith Malinga has joined BPL franchise Khulna Titans Monday afternoon, ahead of the Sylhet phase of the tournament.

The addition of Malinga will boost the Titans squad after a disappointing start to the tournament in Dhaka where Khulna lost all four matches to find themselves bottom of the points table.

In the last edition of the BPL in 2017, the 35-year old played for Rangpur Riders and took eight wickets in as many matches.

Malinga reacts after arriving in Sylhet

The right-arm pacer arrived in Sylhet after captaining the Lankans in their limited-over leg of the tour of New Zealand.

Upon his arrival, Malinga said, "Still eight matches left. We have a good team. Hopefully we can turn around and start winning from next match."

Khulna will take on Rajshahi Kings in the first game of the Sylhet phase Tuesday afternoon, at 1:30pm.
