Sri Lanka who are one-up in the 3 Test series against Australia are contemplating a change in the batting order especially with the openers.
For the past 2 years, Sri Lanka has gone with Dimuth Karunaratne and Kaushal Silva as openers, but it has now been established that neither of them are attacking players.
Reports state that now, a few new options are up, and opening with Kusal Perera is one of them.
The Sri Lanka Test squad for the Galle Test which will begin tomorrow will comprise of Captain Angelo Mathews, Kaushal Silva, Dimuth Karunaratne, Kusal Perera, Kusal Mendis, Dinesh Chandimal, Dhananjaya de Silva, Dilruwan Perera, Rangana Herath, Lakshan Sandakan, Nuwan Pradeep, Vishwa Fernando, Asitha Fernando, and Roshen Silva.
