Nuwan Kulasekera announces his test retirement; Intends to concentrate on shorter format

Former ODI No.1 spot holder Nuwan Kulasekara has announced his retirement from Test Cricket with immediate effect.

In a letter addressed to SLC, Kulasekera says,

“I would like to retire from playing Test cricket with immediate effect. After much thought I believe it is the right time to retire and I hope it will allow me to better prepare for ODI and T20 cricket, which I would like to continue playing for Sri Lanka subject to good performance and selection”

The former strike bowler with 48 test wickets to his name and best innings figures of 4/21, was ranked the ICC ODI No1 bowler in March 2009 after a 47 wicket haul in the preceding eleven months.
His prowess is an integral part of the Sri Lankan bowling arsenal, and Sri Lanka Cricket wishes him many more wickets to come!
