    Thisara Perera retires from Test cricket


    Thisara Perera, the Sri Lanka all-rounder, has retired from Test cricket but will continue playing One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is).

    The 26-year-old, who last played a five-day game for the country in July 2012, sent a letter to Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), conveying his decision to pull down the curtains on his Test career.

    Perera, who made his Test debut against England in Cardiff in 2011, has played six Tests in which he has scored 203 runs and picked up 11 wickets. In his last Test outing in July 2012 against Pakistan, Perera registered his career-best figures of 4 for 63 and also scored a crucial 75 - his highest and his only half-century score in Test cricket.

    There was no immediate comment from Perera, whose decision comes ahead of Sri Lanka's three-Test tour of England in May. Sri Lanka will also play seven ODI games, which includes two against Ireland, and one T20I during the tour.
