In 2013, Samaweera retired from international cricket after being left out of the Test squad for Sri Lanka’s home series against Bangladesh.Being a spin bowler in the Muttiah Muralidaran era was tantamount to foolhardiness, as the spin great was bound to overshadow your performances. Thilan Samaraweera learnt his lessons quickly and from being an off-spinner who could bat a bit, he transformed himself into a genuine front-line batsman.
