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.
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."
Malinga is the second highest wickets taker in the T20s. He has already bagged 355 wickets in 264 matches.
Khulna will take on Rajshahi Kings in the first game of the Sylhet phase Tuesday afternoon, at 1:30pm.
