    Default Samaraweera quits internationals

    155101 - Samaraweera quits internationals

    Thilan Samaraweera has retired from international cricket after being left out of the Sri Lanka squad for the first Test against Bangladesh in Galle, which starts on March 8. Samaraweera had sent a letter to Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) on Tuesday informing it of his intention and the board has now accepted his decision.

    "I was shocked with my omission from the squad against Bangladesh," Samaraweera said, adding he had been told by the selectors that they may need him to play Pakistan later this year."There was no point in waiting for nine months. I respect the decision of the selectors to go with young players and decided it was the right time for me to retire."
    SLC wanted him to play against Bangladesh - perhaps a farewell Test - but Samaraweera declined because he felt the time was right to retire.
    "I never wanted a farewell match because if you're not good enough to be in the 15-man squad, there's nowhere in the world you can play in the first XI," the 36-year-old Samaraweera said. "I didn't want to be selfish and deprive a youngster of his place by requesting to play in a farewell Test."
