Batter Bhanuka Rajapaksa on Wednesday sent a letter to Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), announcing his retirement from international cricket with immediate effect, citing family obligations.
Rajapaksa made his T20 debut on October 5, 2019, in the tour of Pakistan. Notably, Rajapaksa got into trouble for criticising selection policies in an interview after being left out for fitness concerns and was handed a suspended one-year ban.
