I disagree, he must play against Ireland to gain match fitness. His radar gun is going to be all over the place if he doesnt get any games in, a really bad combination for a knockout game that.
For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke
v Australia on 16th
v Ireland on 18th
Semis on 24/25th.
The semi game is a good 6 days after the Ireland game. There is nothing as good as match practise but if he is not fit for the game versus Australia, don't see how he can be fully fit in 2 days. If he does fully recover, no problem.. play him. It depends on how fit he is. He should be given as much time to fully recover according to me.

Play him against Australia and rest him for Ireland. We got a chance of coming 1st in the Super 8 and IMO it could make a massive difference for our chances to make the final and win the whole thing.

SL have to rest Malinga till the Semis. No need to get paranoid now, especially facing Ireland in the last match.
