Colombo: Sri Lankan all-rounder Thisara Perera has revealed the secret of not coming to Pakistan
According to details, Sri Lankan team players visiting Pakistan were relatively less experienced, while the team’s permanent captain, Thisara Perera, also refused to come to Pakistan. This rejection of Thisara Perera was strongly disliked in Pakistan, while Fawad Chaudhry said that India had threatened that if Sri Lankan players who played IPL visited Pakistan, they would relieve themselves from the Indian Premier League.
Thisara Perera has stated on social media website Twitter that he was in the West Indies for the Caribbean League, he got dengue, so he can’t come to Pakistan. He cited the real reason for not coming to Pakistan after breaking the stagnation. The Sri Lankan all-rounder said people made a lot of talk without knowing anything about his tour to Pakistan.

There was no way I could support anyone in anyway. Still rested on Doctors advice

He said that doctors had suggested rest, I could not help anyone in any way, and people would say anything without knowing the truth. Remember that Sri Lankan all-rounder Thisara Perera was part of that team when the World XI team visited Pakistan two years ago. Sri Lanka had a clean sweep after beating Pakistan in their last T20 match, while Pakistan had won the one-day series by 2-0.
While on the hand after completing the series, Sri Lankan coach said that we will always remember the love given by the people of Pakistan. Pakistan provided us high-level security and we are happy to come and play in Pakistan. He added that winning a T-20 series against NO.1 side is a pleasure for us. We played according to our plan and the results were also in our favor. He continued, our pool consisted of 30 to 40 players. For the tour of Pakistan, we have selected the players that can play cricket without any fear.
