Former Sri Lanka ODI captain Upul Tharanga announced his retirement from international cricket today. 

Tharanga made the announcement through a statement published on his Facebook account. 

The statement read, “My Dear Friends, As the good old saying goes "All good things must come to an end", I believe it is time for me to bid farewell to my International Cricket Career after over 15 years of giving the game my all.”

“I leave behind a road traveled with fond memories and great friendships. I am thankful to Sri Lanka Cricket for always having faith and the trust vested in me. I am grateful to the many Cricket Loving Fans, friends And my family for standing by me during my highest of highs and even at my lowest points in my career. Your well-wishes and messages of encouragement was easily the drive behind my ambition. For that I thank you all, and I wish you well.”

“I would like to wish Sri Lanka Cricket all the very best for the future and I am hopeful that the team will bounce back strong soon. Thank you all!” Tharanga also said in his statement. 

The former captain presented Sri Lanka in 31 Tests, but was more prolific in one-day cricket, in which he scored 6951 runs in 235 matches. 

He also played 26 T20Is for Sri Lanka.

    He made a mistake by keeping away from test cricket for not being selected, regularly, particularly when he was performing well in tests.
