Thushara’s focus on maintaining fitness and continuously improving his game reflects his ambition to succeed at the international level, with the T20 World Cup being a key target for him.

Despite being initially benched in the series, Thushara’s stellar performance in the final match has undoubtedly strengthened his position in the team. With the support of his seniors and coaches, along with his own unwavering commitment, Thushara is poised to make significant contributions to Sri Lankan cricket in the upcoming series and beyond.
