SLC accepts resignation of Lahiru Thirimanne

The Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) says its Executive Committee has accepted the resignation of Lahiru Thirimanne from playing all forms of International Cricket.

This follows a resignation letter the player sent to Sri Lanka Cricket announcing his intention to retire from playing international cricket for his country, the national cricket governing body said in a statement.
The Executive Committee decided to accept the resignation letter of Thirimanne during a Meeting held recently, according to the SLC.

“We take this opportunity to wish Thirimanne the best in his future endeavors, and his services to Sri Lanka Cricket covering all forms of the game will be well remembered,” said Ashley De Silva, the CEO of Sri Lanka Cricket.

Thirimanne appeared for Sri Lanka in 44 Test matches, 127 ODIs, and 26 T20Is, amassing over 5500 international runs across all formats for his country.
