Sri Lanka all-rounder Eshani Lokusuriyage has announced her retirement from international cricket at the age of 37.

Lokusuriyage, who made her debut in 2005, has represented Sri Lanka Women in 89 One Day Internationals (ODIs) and 68 T20 internationals.

She is fourth on their list of all-time run-scorers in ODIs with 1,219 runs, including five half-centuries.

She is sixth among their highest wicket-takers in the format, having taken 49 with her medium-pace.

In T20Is, she is in the top four for her country in both batting and bowling at her time of retirement.

One of her brightest moments on the cricket field came during the ICC Women’s World Cup 2013, when Sri Lanka upset England.

Opening the bowling, she took two for 49, including the wicket of Charlotte Edwards bowled.

Then, chasing a target of 239, she made a powerful 56 off 61 balls. She is expected to continue to play for her domestic side Sri Lanka Navy. (ICC)
