The process of retirement of cricket players in Sri Lanka does not stop. The new name in this is the team’s fast pitcher Suranga Lakmal. Lakmal has also announced his retirement from all forms of cricket. The Test series to be played on the upcoming tour of India will be the last series of his career.

Lakmal made his international racing debut in the year 2009. He played 68 Tests and 86 ODIs in his career. He was also part of 11 T20 Internationals. He has a total of 285 wickets and 1179 runs in his international career. The 34-year-old had also taken over the Sri Lanka team captaincy in the absence of Dinesh Chandimal in 2018.

Lakmal scored his first event victory as captain on foreign soil. This victory was achieved against the West Indies at Kingston Oval. Sri Lanka Cricket CEO Ashley de Silva said of his retirement announcement: “We wish Lakmal all the best for his future and would like to see him play for the team if the selectors include him in the squad for the India tour. “.

Significantly, in the last year, many Sri Lankan players have bid farewell to cricket. Along with veteran and experienced players, many young players have also been involved in this. There were also some players whose cricket career had just started. Due to less money in Sri Lankan cricket and the name and money being received in overseas franchise leagues, these cricketers have started to leave the country. Recently, the Sri Lankan Board had also established some rules for the retirement of cricketers. By virtue of this, a player must inform the board of this decision months before the retirement announcement takes place.
