Malinga set to retire from ODI cricket, continue in T20s

Sri Lankan fast bowler Lasith Malinga is set to retire from one-day international cricket after playing the first game of a three-match series against Bangladesh this week. Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne says Malinga has indicated he’ll retire from ODI’s after Friday’s match. He will continue to play Twenty20 internationals. In a career spanning 15 years, the 35-year-old paceman with a distinctive slinging bowling action has played in 225 one-day internationals and taken 335 wickets. He has been the premier match-winning bowler for Sri Lanka for many years playing alongside and after the exit of ace off spinner Muttiah Muralitharan. He also has three hat-tricks in ODIs, including four wickets in consecutive deliveries in a World Cup game against South Africa in 2007. He retired from test cricket in 2010 after taking 101 wickets in 30 matches.
