Perera who has been building up his fitness levels after recovering from Covid-19 will be available for the remainder of the T20I series against the visiting South African side as medical authorities have cleared him to play following a fitness test held today (11th).

The left-hander suffered a shoulder injury during Sri Lanka’s tour of England which ruled him out of the India series held in July.
