He also became the first cricketer to take 100 Twenty20 wickets.

"Today is a very special day for me," said Malinga, 38, as he left cricket on Tuesday. I would like to thank everyone who has supported me throughout my T20 career. Today I want to rest my T20 playing boots. '

"I would like to thank the Sri Lanka Cricket Board, Mumbai Indians, Melbourne Stars, Kent Cricket Club, Rangpur Riders, Guinea Warriors, Maratha Warriors and the Montreal Tigers," he added. Now I want to share my experience with young cricketers who want to represent franchise cricket and the national team. '
