All-rounder Isuru Udana announced yesterday that he wished to call it quits from the Sri Lanka cricket team in order to what he called “make way for the next generation players”

“I believe the time has come for me to make way for the next generation of players,’’ said Udana in notifying Sri Lanka Cricket of his decision to retire from international sport.

‘’It is with immense pride and passion, and unfathomable commitment that I have represented and served my country,’’ he further said

Never consistent like most Sri Lanka players, Udana was a late entrant and played in 21 ODI matches scoring 237 runs with a career-best 78 while taking 18 wickets after making his debut against India in 2012.

He retires at the age of 33 after also featuring in 34 T20 games scoring 256 runs with a top score of 84 while taking just 27 wickets.

He played his last match against India in the second T20 International at the Premadasa Stadium last Wednesday bowling just one over for seven runs after making his T20 debut in 2009 against Australia.
