Upul Tharanga has announced his retirement from international cricket. The 36-year-old made his announcement on a Facebook post.
“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,” he wrote.
“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”.
Tharanga played 31 Tests, 235 ODIs and 26 T20 internationals in a career spanning 15 years, scoring 1754, 6951 and 407 runs respectively.
