Isuru Udana announces international retirement

The Sri Lanka pacer recently featured in the white-ball series against India

Sri Lanka pacer Isuru Udana has announced his international retirement with immediate effect, a media release from Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), confirms. The 33-year-old has represented Sri Lanka in 21 One-Day Internationals (ODI) and 35 t20 Internationals (T20I), last of which came during the recent white-ball series against India.

"I believe the time has come for me to make way for the next generation of players," said Udana whilst notifying his decision to Sri Lanka Cricket. 

"It is with immense pride and passion, and unfathomable commitment that I have represented and served my country," he further added.

SLC further went on to thank Udana for his contributions. "Sri Lanka Cricket wishes Udana, who was a valuable player in Sri Lanka's White-Ball teams, the very best in his future endeavors," the statement added.

Udana, who was released by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) ahead of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 has picked up 18 wickets in ODIs and in the T20Is, he has struck on 27 occasions. 

He was a handy batsman lower down the order as well, having accumulated 237 runs at a strike-rate of 95.18 and 256 runs at a strike-rate in excess of 137 in ODIs and T20Is respectively.
