Jayawardene to retire from T20Is
Mahela Jayawardene, the former Sri Lanka captain, will retire from international Twenty20 cricket at the end of the World Twenty20.
The news came a day after his team-mate, Kumar Sangakkara, announced the tournament will be his last in the format as well.
Jayawardene, 36, has played 49 T20Is to date, scoring 1335 runs at 31.78, with a strike rate of 134.17.
He has one century in the format, which came against Zimbabwe in Guyana during the 2010 World T20.
