Lasith Malinga, the most successful bowler in Twenty20 international history, has announced his retirement.
The 38-year-old, who won the World Twenty20 in 2014, has a total of 107 T20 international wickets at an average of 20.79.
After retiring from Tests in 2011, one-day internationals in 2019, and franchise cricket this year, he only played T20 internationals.
Malinga congratulated his previous teammates and the teams he has represented in a video posted to social media.
“I’ve had many experiences throughout my career, and I want to share all of my experience in the future, especially with young cricketers,” he said.
Malinga, who last played for Sri Lanka in a T20 match in March 2020, has been left out of the squad for the T20 World Cup, which begins on October 17th.
