He had earlier retired from Test cricket. Sri Lankan cricketers Thisara Perera was playing limited overs cricket. This time he also retired from there.
According to Cricketer, Sri Lanka will announce the squad for the one-day series against England and Bangladesh next Thursday. It was rumored that he might not get a chance in the upcoming two series. So the Sri Lankan all-rounder stepped aside earlier.
Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said Perera had informed the board of his decision to retire from international cricket.
The country’s selectors for the upcoming tour will not consider Dimuth Karunaratne, Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal, Suranga Lakmal and Thisara Perera among the senior players. They will give opportunities to young cricketers.
