Mahela Jayawardene, the former
Sri Lanka captain, will retire from
Twenty20 internationals at the
end of the World T20.
The news came a day after his
team-mate, Kumar Sangakkara,
announced the tournament will be
his last in the format as well.
"The rationale behind retirement
is pretty much the same as Sanga's,"
"When it is clear that I can't see
myself playing in the next ICC
World T20, there wasn't much point
in me occupying a spot. It makes
more sense for a youngster to come
into the mix and establish himself."
Jayawardene, 36, has played 49
T20Is to date, and is his nation's
leading run-scorer in the format,
having hit 1335 runs at 31.78, with
a strike rate of 134.17.
A technical purist for much of
his career, Jayawardene introduced
new strokes and an innovative out-
look to his game to become arguably
Sri Lanka's best T20 batsman.
He had not played the reverse
sweep for the first 10 years of his
international career, but the shot is
now among his most productive in
"While I enjoy all formats of the
game, and Test cricket is certainly
the pinnacle for any player, the jour-
ney in Twenty20 cricket has been
fascinating," Jayawardene said.
"In many ways it helped me get
back to my roots, to bat like I used
to when I was a schoolboy, for the
sheer love of playing attacking shots
and expressing myself with full free-
Jayawardene is also revered
among Sri Lanka's finest captains,
and his record at the helm of the
T20 side lays out his tactical
In 19 matches under Jayawardene,
Sri Lanka won 12, lost six and tied
one. He had the reins during Sri
Lanka's march to the 2012 World
T20 final, having hit a crucial 42
on a Premadasa dustbowl in the
semi-final, to propel his team there.
That his retirement came 18 years
to the day since Sri Lanka won the
World Cup, did not escape Jayawar-
Having lost two World T20 finals,
he hoped his swansong would cap-
ture something of that 1996 spirit.
"That was a big day for Sri
Lankan cricket and no one at home
will ever forget it. Every year we
look back on that date with joy,"
he said. "Hopefully we can do
something special here in this tour-
nament as well.
"We always come into big tour-
naments such as this one with a
view to showing the world what Sri
Lanka is capable of. We take great
pride in our performances and it's
no different here in Bangladesh."
Jayawardene has taken more
catches in international cricket than
any other fielder, with 14 of those
having come in T20s. He has one
T20 century against Zimbabwe in
Guyana, making him one of six
batsmen to have hit a hundred in
all three formats.
Jayawardene also shares a sec-
ond-wicket partnership record with
Sangakkara, having made 166
together against West Indies in
2010. Like Sangakkara, Jayawardene
is expected to continue playing fran-
chise-based domestic T20.
While T20 retirement is the first
step toward winding down his inter-
national career, he has indicated
the 2015 ODI World Cup remains
a goal, and that he will play Tests
as long as form, fitness and moti-
vation allow. (ESPNcricinfo)
