Lasith Malinga plans to retire from international cricket after competing in the T20 World Cup for Sri Lanka next year.
The 35-year-old bowler believes he has one more year left at the top before he will retire from international duty.
The fans’ favourite has claimed 97 wickets in T20 internationals and is just one behind Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi (98) on the all-time list.
Confirming his decision, Malinga told reporters: “After the World Cup, my cricketing career is ending. I want to play in the T20 World Cup and then end my career.”
Malinga is currently captaining Sri Lanka’s white-ball sides in South Africa but he may lose that honour to Dimuth Karunaratne or Angelo Mathews for the World Cup.
