5 famous cricketers whose comebacks from retirement didn't quite go as expected

ANALYST

5) Sanath Jayasuriya

Sanath Jayasuriya
Sanath Jayasuriya’s career ended in an abysmal manner

The Sri Lankan great didn’t quite please his ardent fans when he made a drab return to international cricket at the age of 41, to the national limited-overs team in England in 2011, under controversial circumstances.

To everyone’s disappointment, the swashbuckling southpaw signed off a long and distinguished international career by being out for 2 off Tim Bresnan’s bowling in the 1st ODI between the countries at Kennington Oval, London.

Jayasuriya, who has over 20,000 runs and 400 wickets in international cricket surely didn’t plan that sort of a farewell for him. It would have been ideal had he shunned the idea of making a comeback.
