The owner of the best mop of curly hair in international cricket, as well as the deadliest yorkers, is playing his last ODI today.

And he signs of with 3/38, two of the wickets bowled, with yorkers. Hopefully there will be one final hooray at the world T20.

Wicket last ball to finish the match, nice finish.

I guess in this case it was convenient that there was a home ODI two weeks after the end of the World Cup, so Malinga could have a home farewell match. In a lot of cases the next home ODI for a country after the World Cup might be months away.
