Sangakkara announces retirement from first class cricket

Kumar-Sangakkara-900-02

39 year old former Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara has announced that he would retire from first-class cricket at the end of the  English county championship season in September. He quit Test cricket in 2015.

He made the announcement speaking to BBC Sport. He said:"It's the last time I'll play a four-day game here [at Lord's]. I'll be 40 in a few months, this is about the end of my time in county cricket. My career might have a few more months [left] but that's about it. Cricketers, or any sort of sportsperson, have an expiry date and you need to walk away. I have been very lucky to play for as long as I did so but there's a lot more life to be lived away from the game."
