Sri Lankan cricketer Lasith Malinga retires from T20 cricket, ends career

Colombo/IBNS: Sri Lankan pace bowler Lasith Malinga Tuesday ended his cricketing career by announcing his retirement from the T20 format.

Malinga had earlier retired from the other forms of cricket.

In a tweet, the bowler said, "Hanging up my #T20 shoes and #retiring from all forms of cricket! Thankful to all those who supported me in my journey, and looking forward to sharing my experience with young cricketers in the years to come."

Malinga played 30 Test matches, 226 ODIs and 84 T20Is for Sri Lanka, picking up 546 wickets.

Malinga last played a T20I match for Sri Lanka in March 2020 against West Indies in Pallekele.

The bowler, who was a menace for batsmen due to his yorker, wasn't named in the Sri Lankan squad for the T20 World Cup, which will begin in October.
