Watch: Perera smashing 30 runs in an over
Comilla Victorians’ all-rounder Thisara Perera played a destructing knock on his first appearance in the sixth edition of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).
Coming to Bangladesh straight from New Zealand after completing national duties, Perera took the bowlers to the cleaners, smashing a 20-ball fifty.
After Chittagong put Comilla to bat first, Tamim Iqbal departed for a duck, Evin Lewis went back to the pavilion and Shahid Afridi lost his wicket in the most hilarious – hit wicket. Everything was going wrong for the Victorians, but the Sri Lanka all-rounder turned the table along with Mohammad Saifuddin.
Smashing 3 fours and 8 mighty sixes, Perera scored an unbeaten 74 off just 26 balls and took Victorians to a huge score of 184 runs.
Perera started from where he left off in New Zealand. The all-rounder is in brilliant form with the bat. He also smashed 74-ball fifty against New Zealand in the ODI series.
