“I thought about it long and hard and decided that’s it. It’s a very emotional moment, but I guess every good thing has to come to an end,” he told AFP.

Jayasuriya, 36, will make his final Test appearance in match starting in Kandy on Monday.

But he said he will be available for selection for next year’s World Cup.
