Mahela quits tests

FORMER Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene will retire from test cricket, but will continue to play ODIs, the nation’s cricket board said yesterday.

In a letter to Sri Lanka Cricket Chief Executive Officer Ashley De Silva, the 37-year-old has stated that he would like to retire from test cricket after the forthcoming series against South Africa and Pakistan, SLC said in a statement. Jayawardene, a right hand batsman, made his debut in 1997, and has played 145 tests, scoring 11,493 runs at an average of 50.18 with 33 hundreds. He retired from Twenty20 cricket in April after his side won the world title.
