Sri Lanka’s left arm spinner Rangana Herath is likely to retire from international cricket after the 2016 T20 World Cup held in India.

Hearath aged 38, admitted to his retirment due to his knee injury which is also one of the key factors that affected him.

Herath recently spun Sri Lanka to a famous victory in Galle against India while defending a low total in the fourth innings. He said that his ongoing knee injury was hampering his bowling.

The upcoming two-Test series against West Indies represents another challenge for Herath. In particular, his knees are a special area of concern after undergoing surgery on each leg four years ago.

To reduce the pain, Herath went to Australia shortly before the 2014 World Twenty20 and got a C-reactive protein injection for each knee but it is a over a year since and the pain has returned

Hearath stated that he had a clean-up and had no problem playing after that. But of late he has been getting pains. It is four years since the operation and the effect of it must have worn off over the years due to the wear and tear while playing.
