Upul Tharanga announces retirement

Former Sri Lanka opener Upul Tharanga yesterday announced his retirement from international cricket, calling it a day on his 15-year-long career.

The swashbuckling opener shared a heartfelt note on social media as he hung up his boots after having played his last international game for Sri Lanka back in 2019.

The left-handed batsman had also led the Sri Lankan Team several times as a stand-in Captain before being appointed as the permanent captain in 2017. He played in 31 Tests, 235 One Day Internationals and 26 Twenty20 Internationals.

“I believe it is time for me to bid farewell to my International Cricket Career after over 15 years. I leave behind a road travelled with fond memories and great friendships,” Tharanga wrote on social media. (D.R)
