Profile

A classical offspinner with an easy, fluent action, Dilruwan Perera had been among Sri Lanka's steadiest first-class performers, before being rewarded with the second spinner's berth in the Test squad, in 2014. It was with the bat that he made his first impression in Tests: Perera came within five runs of scoring a century on debut, against Pakistan at Sharjah, but he asserted himself as a bowler soon enough. His second-innings five-wicket haul helped wipe Bangladesh out in Dhaka, less than two weeks later.
