Lasith Malinga has announced retirement from all forms of cricket!

The 38-year-old Sri Lanka pacer took to social media to announce his decision on Tuesday.

Malinga had retired from Test and ODI cricket earlier this year in January but was yet to call it quits from T20 internationals format.

“Hanging up my T20 shoes and retiring from all forms of cricket! Thankful to all those who supported me in my journey, and looking forward to sharing my experience with young cricketers in the years to come,” Malinga tweeted.

The veteran terrorised the world’s best batsmen with his toe-crushing yorkers delivered from a low and sling-arm action.
He picked up 107 wickets in 84 T20 Internationals, 338  in 226 ODIs, and 101 wickets in 30 Tests.
