Sri Lankan pacemaker Isul Udana has retired from international cricket and has taken effect immediately. Udana finally played in her own country in the second leg of the recently completed three-game T20I series against India. In a statement to Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), the 33-year-old announced that it was a good time to take a step back and give way to the next generation of players.

“I think it’s time to give way to the next generation of players,” Sri Lankan cricket said.

“I have represented and served the country with immeasurable pride, passion and immeasurable commitment,” Udana added.

After making his debut in 2009, Udana has appeared in the 2009 ICC T20 World Cup and the 2019 Cricket World Cup during his 12-year career. However, he played in his country for a total of 21 ODIs and 34 T20 Internationals during this period, winning 18 and 27 wickets, respectively.

During this period, Udana also signed an IPL contract with the Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore, playing 10 games in the 2020 edition and winning 8 wickets in the 9.72 economy.
