According, to the new rules and regulations a player who is planning to take retirement from international cricket should officially inform the governing body three months ahead, stating his intention to retire.

Meanwhile, the retired players who want to obtain the ‘’No Objection Certificates’’ (NOCs) to play franchise league tournaments in other countries, will get it only after they have completed six months of their effective date of retirement.

Reportedly Sri Lanka left-handed batsman Bhanuka Rajapaksa has decided to retire from international cricket. If the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) sources are to be believed, Rajapaksa has already handed over his retirement letter to the cricket administration.

Bhanuka Rajapaksa has played 5 One Day Internationals and 18 T20 Internationals for Sri Lanka National Cricket Team and has scored 89 and 320 runs at an average of 17.8 and 26.67 respectively.

The sources of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) have revealed that Bhanuka Rajapaksa in his retirement letter has stated that he has decided to quit international cricket because he can’t play cricket with the latest fitness standards introduced by the cricket board especially the skinfold levels.

The 30-year-old batsman feels if he brings down his skinfold levels he will not be able to do his power-hitting. Notably, the cricket administration has lowered the skin-fold test levels to 70 from 85.
