Sri Lanka all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga retires from Test cricket | Cricket News

Featured in:


NEW DELHI: Sri Lankan allrounder Wanindu Hasaranga on Tuesday announced his retirement from Test cricket, aiming to extend his career within the limited-overs format of the sport.

Confirming the news, the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) conveyed that it has acknowledged the 26-year-old Hasaranga’s choice.
“We will accept his decision and are confident that Hasaranga will be a vital part of our white-ball programme going forward,” said SLC CEO Ashley De Silva.

Hasaranga made his Test debut against South Africa at Centurion in 2020, and played three more Tests thereafter.
From four Tests, he took four wickets with his leg-spin. His last Test was against Bangladesh in Pallekele in 2021.
However, Hasaranga continues to be a prominent figure for Sri Lanka in white ball formats as the spin spearhead and a handy lower-order batsman.

From 48 ODIs, Hasaranga grabbed 67 wickets and made 832 runs with four fifties.
Hasaranga has 91 wickets from 58 T20Is and amassed 533 runs with a fifty.
The Lankan is also a much sought-after player in various T20 leagues across the world.
Apart from plying his trade with the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL, Hasaranga has also played for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots (CPL), Quetta Gladiators (PSL), Kandy Falcons and Jaffna Kings (LPL), Desert Vipers (IL T20) and Washington Freedom (MLC).
