Retiring Lakmal ready to give back to the game

“Anytime if I’m needed for the future of Sri Lanka Cricket, I’m available. Call me. I will inculcate all what I know, even if it’s of small measure. I’ve always told we need to love the game and play with pride”, he said on Friday, the eve of his last match in his career.

Though he is about to join the Derbyshire County Cricket, in his maiden county cricket exposure, he still did not rule out his availability in educating his youngsters and successors.

Lakmal will call it a career at the end of this tour after representing the country for thirteen-years.

  1. Great story is Lakmal and kept getting with the years and probably bowling his best now so shame he is leaving now but as 35 year old fast bowler, needs to weigh up options I guess. A loss for us as we are reliant on him in recent times while the younger chaps crawl around with injuries, Lakmal has kept going on and even captained his country. SL is a touch place for fast bowlers so he is never going to an over impressive record but he has done really well in a tough place for the fast men.
