Back spasms have forced Lasith Malinga, the Mumbai Indians fast bowler, to return to Sri Lanka for treatment, and he could miss up to two weeks of the IPL as a result.

Malinga last played for Mumbai Indians against Rajasthan Royals on April 11th  and missed the match against Delhi Daredevils on April 16.

Malinga has reportedly not been training since the game against Royals and flew back to Sri Lanka on the morning of April 16th.

The team spokesperson said that Malinga "required rest and it made sense to send him back home", but they were hopeful he would return in a few days.
