Guyana, Mar 27 (UNI) Sri Lankan pace bowler Chaminda Vaas is planning to end his illustrious international career in one year's time.

''I am coming to the end of my playing career but I am taking things game by game. I am enjoying what I am doing right now for Sri Lanka cricket,'' Vass said.

''I am thinking I will play for another year - about three or four more Test matches before I call it quits,'' he added.

However, Vaas admits that he is enjoying his cricket at the moment and he has set himself a time frame for when he plans to call it a day.

''I feel no pressure right now at all,'' he said. ''And I am enjoying the way I have been bowling and the way things have been going for the Sri Lanka team.'' The 34-year-old, widely regarded as the best fast bowler of Srilanka feels that the South Asin Nation have plenty of talents and it is the right time to leave.

''I think Sri Lanka cricket is going in the right way and I believe that when I leave, it will be the right time,'' he said.

The experienced left-arm pacer took five for 61 as Sri Lanka secured a historic victory in the first Test against West Indies yesterday.
