Herath retires

Burgey

He's not TPC. I don't know how many times we have to go over this.

But it's a shame to see him go all the same. Top quality bowler. He'll be missed.

394 test wickets after turning 31? Why wasn't he Murali's support bowler for the decade before that?

Maybe he couldn't get out of a shift at the bank

i've spoken at length about my appreciation of Rangana Herath at length on this forum, particularly during my first iteration as a poster here back in 2013-15 when he was really peaking. His ability to lift the whole side, and fight using whatever means he had at his disposal, a very unassuming character who proved that having a handle on the basics meant much more than strength of variety or raw skills.

Man, I love His Roundness so much that even if he inflicts a humiliating defeat on us in his final test I'll just be happy for him, rather than sad that we've lost.

Most universally loved cricketer on here after Dale Steyn I think. Not bad considering he bowls gentle finger spin.

He's so good that SL implemented a no fatty and no biscuit policy and he could still retain his place

Sad that TPC is retiring. World cricket will miss him but Sri Lanka will find it bloody hard to replace his roundness.

Shows how impressive Sri Lanka's bench strength was back then tbh

I mean, a bench would have to be pretty strong to support Herath
