Ether Tharanga replaces KJP or KJP moves down to 7 -!: plays as wicketkeeper while Chandimal moves up to 3/4.

Moving Kusal perera as lower order batsman is not a bad idea.

main problem is not having batsmen who can fill sanga's boots at no.3 i think someone like chandimal needs to bat at no.3 beacause top order needs to score heavily if we want to chase big totals. i don't think upul can play that role at 3 when ball swinging well. if chandimal bat at no.3 we can use upul tharanga at 7 as wicketkeeper. giving chances to de silva to bat at no.6. this will be the ideal order. if talking about bowlers i think selectors made some mistakes. had to bring left arm seamer welagedara who got 5 wicket haul last time in SA. also dasun shanka had to be useful in these conditions

I think Kusal should be kept out of next 2 Tests a failure in the next match would mean he'd get dropped not only from the 3rd Test but from the limited overd squad as well.Which would have huge effect on him just as happend to thiri.

If he plays it must be @7.

Very surprised most people want kusal to still play. I want Upul Tharanga to take his spot at number three for the second test. If that doesnt work then swap Dhananjaya de Silva and Tharanga for the third test

Remove Kusal Perera. Bring a bowler. I'm sure. That bowler will do better role with bat than KJP

Bring the players like Roshen Silva, Asela Gunarathna (Avg 65+ in last series) to the team
