Lasith Malinga retires from all forms of cricket
 
Colombo, Veteran Sri Lanka pacer Lasith Malinga on Tuesday announced his retirement from T20Is, bringing an end to his glorious international career in all three formats of the game.

Malinga, who played 30 Test matches, 226 ODIs and 84 T20Is for Sri Lanka, picking up 546 wickets, made this announcement on social media.

'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,' tweeted Malinga.

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

In a glorious international career, Malinga experienced some incredible highs representing the Sri Lankan national team. He led his side to glory in the 2014 ICC Men's T20 World Cup in Bangladesh.

A fearsome pacer known for his menacing yorkers, Malinga is the leading wicket-taker in T20I cricket with his 107 scalps. Malinga also has two T20I hat-tricks to his name.

Malinga also picked up three hat-tricks in ODI cricket, with his performance against South Africa in the 2007 World Cup in West Indies etched in history.

He retired from Test cricket in 2011, to work on his fitness and concentrate on the shorter formats of the game.
