As Lasith Malinga retired from ODI cricket on Friday, many cricketers took to Twitter to extend their wishes to the veteran Sri Lanka pacer and wished him luck for his future.
On Friday, Malinga brought an end to his illustrious ODI career with a wicket off the last ball he bowled in the first ODI of the three-match series against Bangladesh — which Sri Lanka won by 91 runs in Colombo. He took 3/38 and went past Anil Kumble’s tally of 337 wickets in the 50-over format.
“If I had to pick one match winner among many others for Mumbai Indians in the last decade, this man will be on the top for sure. As a captain he gave me breather during tense situation and he never failed to deliver, such was his presence within the team. Best wishes LM for the future (sic.),” India opener Rohit Sharma tweeted.
