Sri Lanka batsman Danushka Gunathilaka retires from Test cricket at 30

As
per
reports,
the
30-year-old
batter
retired
from
the
longest
format
of
the
game
in
order
to
focus
on
the
white-ball
cricket.

Gunathilaka
played
his
last
Test
match
in
2018
with
his
eight
appearances
bringing
him
299
runs.

He
hit
two
half-centuries,
with
a
best
of
61.
His
limited-overs
career,
however,
has
been
more
fruitful.

In
44
ODIs,
he
has
scored
1520
runs
at
an
average
of
36.19,
while
in
T20Is,
he
has
568
runs
in
30
matches
at
a
strike
rate
of
121.62.

Gunathilaka
along
with
Kusal
Mendis
and
Niroshan
Dickwella
faced
a
one-year
suspension
from
playing
International
Cricket,
across
all
three
formats,
by
Sri
Lanka
Cricket.

The
three
players
faced
the
ban
for
breaching
the
bio-bubble
protocols.
SLC
lifted
the
ban
from
the
three
players
on
Friday.


Rajapaksa
retires

Sri
Lanka
batter
Bhanuka
Rajapaksa
too
had
announced
his
international
retirement
with
immediate
effect
last
week.
Rajapaksa,
in
his
letter
of
resignation
handed
over
to
Sri
Lanka
Cricket
(SLC),
said
the
decision
to
resign
was
taken
after
considering
his
family
obligations.

“I
have
very
carefully
considered
my
position
as
a
player,
husband
and
am
taking
this
decision
looking
forward
to
fatherhood
and
associated
familial
obligations,”
he
said
in
his
letter
of
resignation
as
per
Sri
Lanka
Cricket
(SLC).

“He
also
wished
Sri
Lanka
Cricket
continued
success
in
its
future
endeavors,”
a
statement
from
SLC
read.
Rajapaksa
represented
Sri
Lanka,
both
in
ODIs
and
T20Is.
