Kumar Sangakkara will take retirement from Test

Sri Lanka’s wicketkeeper-batsman Kumar Sangakkara on Saturday announced that the second Test match against India would be his last international match. After this match, he will take retirement from Test cricket.
The 37-year-old Sangakkara has already taken retirement from ODI and Twenty20 cricket. He bade farewell to T20 cricket after Sri Lanka won the Twenty20 World Cup in 2014 and announced his retirement from ODI cricket format during the ICC World Cup 2015.

At present, he is the fifth highest run scorer in Test cricket. Playing 131 Tests, he has so far scored 12271 runs at an average of 58.66.
