Sri Lanka named fast-bowling legend Lasith Malinga their "bowling strategy coach" on Thursday for the eight one-day matches against Australia starting next week.

Sri Lanka Cricket said the 38-year-old's expertise and experience would be crucial for the three T20 matches and five one-day internationals to be played in Colombo and Kandy.

"(He) will support Sri Lanka's bowlers, providing tactical insight and technical expertise to help the on-field execution of strategic plans," the board said.

"Sri Lanka Cricket is confident that Malinga's vast experience and renowned death-bowling expertise, especially in the T20 format, will help the team immensely going into this all-important series."

He took 338 ODI wickets and 107 in the T20 format, in addition to 101 Test wickets.
