Sri Lanka Pacer Isuru Udana retires from International Cricket

Sri Lankan pacer Isuru Udana has announced his retirement from international cricket.

“I believe the time has come for me to make way for the next generation of players,” said Isuru 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 added.

Sri Lanka Cricket also wished Udana, who was a valuable player in Sri Lanka’s white-ball teams, the very best in his future endeavors.

Udana, 33, will continue to play domestic cricket, and will be available for franchise tournaments, starting with the CPL, starting in late August. A desire to spend more time with family is understood to be a factor in his decision.

“Cricket was, is and always will be my greatest love and I have always given my 100% both on and off the field. Respecting and upholding the spirit of cricket and national pride always,” he said in a statement. “However, I believe the time has come, for me to retire from international cricket in order to make way for the next generation of players.”

The news came as something of a surprise, as Udana had not only been largely free of injury over the past three years. But also had a place in both Sri Lanka’s limited-overs squads. He played one ODI and two T20Is in the just-concluded series against India, and had also played in all three T20Is against England in June.

Udana played 21 ODIs and 35 T20Is for Sri Lanka, managing to take 45 wickets across both the formats. The left-arm pacer recently featured in the T20I series against India and he was unable to take a single wicket.
