Often compared to Sri Lankan legend Sanath Jayasuriya, Kusal Perera has proved his capability time and again. He is a masterful act with the bat and plays short-arm jabs, square cuts to perfection. However, consistency has been his biggest nemesis over the years.

Perera featured in a total of 85 ODIs for Sri Lanka but only averages 29. Despite his wonderful strike rate and ability, the average by no means is par for a player of his stature. He’s played a few blistering knocks in 2019 already and will seek a lot of confidence from them going forward.
