Colombo: Sri Lankan pacer Lasith Malinga will be retiring from ODI cricket after the first game of the three-match series against Bangladesh, skipper Dimuth Karunaratne confirmed on Monday.

"Lasith is going to play the first match. After that, he is retiring. That's what he said to me. I don't know what he said for the selectors but for me, he said he is playing only one match," Karunaratne said in a joint media briefing ahead of the Sri Lanka-Bangladesh series.

 

Malinga is Sri Lanka's third-highest wicket-taker in ODI cricket and has scalped 335 wickets in the format so far. Only Muttiah Muralitharan and Chaminda Vaas have more wickets than him in ODI cricket.
