A right-arm medium pacer and a powerful striker of the ball, Perera was pegged as an international cricketer since his Under-19 days. Although he started his career as a bowler, Perera worked hard at his batting and has developed into a handy all-rounder. The 24-year-old was part of the Chennai Super Kings during IPL 2010, but was subsequently signed by the Kochi Tuskers, then Mumbai Indians before hectic bidding saw Sunrisers Hyderabad grabbing him for USD 675,000 at the 2013 IPL Player Auction. The Sri Lankan all-rounder proved to be a vital cog in the Sunrisers Hyderabad line-up. He scored 233 runs and picked 19 wickets from 16 matches and on several occasions rescued his team from dire situations and converted lost causes into victories.
