Sri Lanka all-rounder Thisara Perera announced retirement from international cricket on Monday. The 32-year-old had been a regular in the side's white-ball games. His retirement news was conveyed to Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) via a letter.

It is being reported that Perera’s retirement news came after Sri Lanka's cricket team selectors decided to drop senior players for forthcoming limited-overs series, one of them being with Bangladesh. He was last seen playing an international game on 14th March 2021. It was an ODI between Sri Lanka and West Indies.

However, Perera confirmed that he would continue to play franchise cricket. The star all-rounder was last seen in franchise colours playing in the inaugural edition of Lanka Premier League in 2020.

The left-handed batsman has played 6 Tests, scoring 203 runs. He also has 11 wickets from the 6 matches under his name.
