July 31, Colombo: Sri Lanka National Player Isuru Udana has announced his retirement from international cricket, with immediate effect.

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said Isuru Udana announced his retirement from National duties, with immediate effect through a letter on Friday.

“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 said.

“Sri Lanka Cricket wishes Udana, who was a valuable player in Sri Lanka’s White-Ball teams, the very best in his future endeavors,” SLC said.

The all-rounder also announced his retirement via his official Twitter handle.

Left-arm pacer 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, according to the ESPN CricInfo.
