(FASTNEWS|COLOMBO) – Sri Lankan limited overs Captain Lasith Malinga will retire from international cricket after next year’s Twenty20 (T20) World Cup, he has revealed, the Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported.
Malinga said that he would quit One-Day Internationals (ODI) after the World Cup in England and Wales this summer before calling time on his career following the T20 tournament, being played in Australia over October – November 2020.
“After the World Cup, my cricketing career is ending,” the 35-year-old said on Friday (22) after his side were beaten by 16 runs by South Africa in the second Twenty20 International (T20I) at SuperSport Park.
“I want to play in the T20 World Cup and then end my career.” Malinga dismissed South African top-scorer Reeza Hendricks for 65 on Friday, his 97th T20I wicket. He is one short of the world record of 98 held by Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi.
