Narangoda Liyanaarachchilage Thisara Chirantha Perera


An attacking batting allrounder, Thissara Perera began his career primarily as a bowler, opening the bowling for the Under-19s. He turned in noteworthy performances in the tri-nation tournament in Sri Lanka in July 2007 and in the youth Test against India in Colombo the following month. Those performances earned him a call-up to the U-19 squad for the World Cup in Malaysia in 2008. He received his maiden national call-up during Sri Lanka's tour of India in 2009 as an emergency replacement for Angelo Mathews. His aggressive batting in an ODI against India in Mirpur helped Sri Lanka pull off a win in a pressure situation. It quickly led to an IPL contract when he was bought by Chennai Super Kings for $50,000. His ambition is to remain associated with the game by taking up coaching.
