He called time on his career with 546 wickets across formats.Malinga was the captain and kingpin amongst Sri Lanka's pantheon that lifted the 2014 ICC Men's T20 World Cup. He has also taken the third most wickets in the ODI World Cups -- 56."Congrats on an awesome career. Your contribution to Sri Lanka and world cricket will stand for all time. Been such a pleasure playing with you. All the very best in what you decide to do from now. So much knowledge to give.
