Sri Lankan former fast bowler Nuwan Kulasekara is all set to quit from the International cricket with immediate effect on Wednesday.
Kulasekara retirement comes on the day after his former veteran Lasith Malinga’s said that he would retire from ODIs after the first match against Bangladesh on July 26.
Kulasekara made his ODI debut as a 21-year-old in a home series against England in 2003. In 2005, he made his Test debut in Napier.
Nuwan Kulasekara was not the part of the World Cup squad of 2019 and last played ODI was in the year 2017. He was part of World Cup squad and finished with runner-up medal.

Kulasekara was spotted as No.1 in ODI bowler’s ranking in the year 2008, after which he has made his World Cup debut for Sri Lanka.
It was seen that Kulasekara was the most expensive bowler for Sri Lanka as he gave away 64 runs in just 8.2 overs.
