Sri Lanka pacer Isuru Udana has announced his retirement from international cricket.

Udana, 33, had made his debut back in 2009 T20I World Cup, scalping couple of wickets against Australia.

He was also one of the only Sri Lankan to feature in the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2020 for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).

“It is with immense pride and passion, and unfathomable commitment that I have represented and served my country,’’ he added.

Udana has played 21 and 34 ODIs and T20Is for the island nation, bagging 18 and 27 wickets respectively.

In IPL, he played 10 games bagging eight wickets.
