Thisara Perera bids farewell from International cricket

Sri Lankan all-rounder Thisara Perera announces retirement from international cricket. As per the reports from SLC, the southpaw has informed them on his decision to hang his boots.

His decision came in response to the report surfacing by the SLC board who were thinking to omit senior players from the national ODI side.

As per the reports of NewsWire, a senior SLC official stated that the selectors are unlikely to consider Dimuth Karunaratne, Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal, Suranga Lakmal, and Thisara Perera for the upcoming outings for limited-overs cricket.

Sri Lankan players will be next locking horns against Bangladesh for an ODI series which will be followed by an ODI and T20 International series against England.

Taking about his carrier so far, Perrera played 166 ODI for Sri Lanka where he scored 2338 runs and clinched 175 wickets in his credit.  Throwing the light on his T20 International carrier where he picked 51 wickets and scored 1204 runs. He was also part of IPL till 2016.

However, it seems strange that he has played only 6 test matches so far for his national team with the last one he played in 2012.  He was also a member of the Sri Lankan side that lifted 2014 ICC World Cup T20.
