Sri Lanka seamer Nuwan Kulasekara has retired from worldwide cricket with immediate effect. Kulasekara hadn't played competitive cricket at the senior level since March 2018 during which he played List-A cricket.

Malinga was named in the 22-man Sri Lanka squad for the series with matches scheduled for July 26, 28 and 31 at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. He played 58 T20Is and recorded 66 wickets.

"I hope to be able to take Sri Lanka to the next T20 World Cup", he said. From a bustling run-up and whippy open-chested action, Nuwan Kulasekara generated some good pace. He played 2 World Cup finals and finished with runners-up medals on both the occassions as the islaners lost to Australia and India in the 2007 and 2011 World Cup finals.

Malinga remained hopeful of representing Sri Lanka in the T20 World Cup next year. The brilliant spearhead in the bowling department played 21 Test matches and picked total 48 wickets for his side. In front of a packed house at Wankhede, Kulasekara was the most expensive bowler for Sri Lanka on the big night as he gave away 64 runs in just 8.2 overs.
