Chandana quits Sri Lanka

Leg-spinner linked with breakaway Indian Cricket League

Chandana: 37 wickets in 16 Tests

Sri Lanka leg-spinner Upul Chandana has retired from international cricket.

Chandana, 35, played 16 Tests and 147 ODIs since his debut in 1999 and is arguably the finest fielder to have represented Sri Lanka.

"I have decided to retire due to personal reasons," said Chandana, who has been linked with the 'rebel' Indian Cricket League.

"I will explain to the media later as I have planned a media conference for a later date in the week."
