Ajantha Mendis, perhaps cricket’s original mystery spinner in the video analysis age, has announced his retirement from all forms of the game. The 34-year old last played international cricket in 2015, an ODI against New Zealand in Christchurch.

The inventor of what became known as the “carrom ball” – leg-breaks produced by flicking the ball like a striker on a carrom board – took 70 wickets in 19 Tests, 152 in 87 ODIs and 66 in 39 T20Is.
Meanwhile, the first T20 match between Sri Lanka and New Zealand will be played on 1st September at Kandy Pallekele grounds.
