Tillakaratne Dilshan will retire from ODIs after the third game in the ongoing five-match ODI series against Australia.
Dilshan has played 329 ODIs for Sri Lanka scoring 10,248 runs. He is the fourth Sri Lankan to cross 10,000 ODI runs. Dilshan, a right-arm off-break bowler, has 106 wickets under his name.
Accoring to cricinfo.com, the 39-year-old batsman will also retire from T20Is after the Australia series. Dilshan retired from Tests in 2013 after playing 87 matches amassing 5,492 runs along with 16 centuries.
Dilshan is most known for inventing the 'Dilscoop', a shot that sends the ball above the wicket-keepers' head, played usually against fast-bowlers.
"Sri Lanka Cricket [SLC] has decided to dedicate the 3rd ODI to be played on Sunday 28th of August 2016 in Dambulla to honour the master batsman Dilshan for his invaluable contribution to his mother land," said SLC president Thilanga Sumathipala in a media release.
"I together with my committee wish to extent our sincere appreciation and wish him the very best in his future endeavors."
