The Melbourne Renegades signed Sri Lankan all-rounder Thisara Perera in place of injured West Indian all-rounder Dwayne Bravo for the ongoing Big Bash League 2016/17.
Perera has been out of international cricket for some time but has performed pretty well in franchise based cricket outside Sri Lanka.
Thisara Perera played for Brisbane Heat in BBL|02. He also performed well in Sri Lanka’s series against Australia in August 2016.
With his ability to clear the ropes and ball wicket to wicket on seem friendly tracks, Perera will most certainly thrive in the ongoing league. Alternatively, the national selectors will stay keen to analyse his performance for the limited over series against South Africa.
