Sangakkara hints to quit ODI after 2015 World Cup

COLOMBO: Sri Lankan veteran batsman, Kumar Sangakkara has given a hint to quit One Day International Cricket after participating in 2015 World Cup but he has plans to extend his Test career for a while longer, ARY News reported.

According to sources, Sangakkara said on Thursday that 2015 World Cup might be his last assignment in that form of the game while he is looking to play Test cricket.

"It depends on the chat I'll have with the selectors and the authorities back home. I'll be 37 at the end of this year, and I'm fully aware that it's fast approaching the time when either you go, or you get asked to leave", he added.

The Sri Lankan batsman has already taken retirement from T20 internationals following Sri Lanka's victorious World T20 campaign in April.

Sangakkara has the fourth leading run-getter in ODIs having scored 12,500 runs from 369 games. He is behind Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting and Sanath Jayasuriya.
