Thisara Perera retires from International cricket
Sri Lanka all-rounder Thisara Perera announced his retirement from international cricket a short while ago.
The 32-year-old cricketer's decision comes after recent announcements made by the selectors of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), revealing that they were considering dropping many senior cricketers, including Perera himself for the upcoming One-Day International (ODI) matches.
The former Sri Lanka captain made his international debut on December 24, 2009, against India. He has since gone on to represent the Sri Lanka national team in over 250 matches.
Having represented Sri Lanka in 166 ODIs, 84 T20I matches and six Tests, Perera has scored one hundred and 14 half-centuries in his international career.
