10 Cricketers who are hit in International T20 But failed in IPL:
10. Thisara Perera:
Thisara Perera has been a reliable all-rounder for Sri Lanka over the years. Unfortunately, he couldn’t replicate the same in IPL even after getting so many chances. He played 79 International games for Sri Lanka, where he has scalped 51 wickets and scored 1169 runs at an average of 23.
His attacking batting and more than useful bowling caught the attention of Chennai Super Kings in the 2010 auctions before subsequently moving onto Kochi Tuskers Kerala and Mumbai Indians. He was later snapped by Hyderabad for USD 675,000 at the 2013 auction in Chennai, following some heavy bidding.
He claimed 19 wickets from 16 matches for SRH in the Indian Premier League 2013. He was purchased by Kings XI Punjab for 16 million in 2014 but was unavailable to play that season. Later, he played for Rising Pune Supergiant in 2016, which was his last appearance in IPL. In IPL, he has amassed only 422 runs off 37 games and picked 31 wickets at an economy of 8.7 which is quite below par considering his returns for Sri Lanka in the shorter formats.
