Angelo Mathews Mulling retires from international cricket

Former Sri Lankan skipper and their talismanic versatile player, Angelo Mathews, apparently considering terminating it from international cricket and he told the SLC the same, reports newswire.lk.

According to the report, Mathews (34) is currently discussing the matter and will probably communicate the decision to the island’s cricket governing body in the coming weeks.

The development comes before Angelo Mathews was fired from the white ball setup because the selectors opted for younger players.

Mathews’ attack from the ODI lineup was surprising, as he has been the only scorer for Sri Lanka in recent years.

The former skipper averaged 63.66 with the bat in 2017, 52.50 in 2018, except that he was Sri Lanka’s best batsman at the 2019 World Cup.

Mathews was the ‘Player of the Match’ in the second last ODI he played against the West Indies earlier this year, where he won four wickets.

Mathews was also at the forefront of Sri Lankan players’ disagreement over the new central contract policy issued by the SLC.

Later, senior players, including Mathews, agreed to sign the contract.

The versatile player, who made his debut in 2009, scored Sri Lanka in 90 Tests, 218 ODIs and 78 titles, and 13,219 runs, in addition to 218 wickets in various formats.
