Perera retires from international cricket

Dilruwan Perera has announced his from international cricket after 43 Tests, 13 ODIs and five T20Is. The allrounder scored 1456 runs across formats and picked 177 wickets at the international stage.

Perera has expressed his desire to continue playing domestic cricket. Perera first made his ODI debut in 2007 against England in Colombo. Seven years later, he earned a Test debut against Pakistan in Sharjah and struck 95 while batting at No. 8 and went on to pick 161 wickets with his off-spin at an average of 35.90, with his best coming against South Africa where he bagged 10 for 78 in Galle in 2018. His last Test too was at the same venue in January last year.

In ODIs, Perera averaged 31.46 and went on to pick 13 wickets from as many games while the three T20Is brought in three wickets. He, however, didn't feature in any of the limited-overs sides since 2018 with his last T20I appearance coming in 2011.
