Kusal Perera vs Niroshan Dickwella

May be Kusal Perera has failed when given an opportunity to open innings but Perera has a wide range of shots than Niroshan Dickwella. Definitely Perera will be one of the cleanest left hand strikers of ball when given opportunities. Whereas Dickwella has only few shots like flick over mid wicket etc... I hope Chandrika Haturusingha will again make to open innings with KJP.

Kusal Perera has proven he is a good middle order batter. He is not good at opening and he has been playing u19 cricket in the middle order as well.

Kusal should open with Tharanga.
Dickwella can be useful middle order batter as he has the right intent but has to mature a lot though

I would like to see kusal and gunathilaka given a long run, as tharanga is weak against the swinging ball why not have him bat at no 4, let him do what Mahela did, just to work the singles and bat through the innings

For a change, why don't Mr. Chandrika Haturusingha try with Thisara Perera and Kusal Perera to open an ODI Format or T20??????

In my opinion, Both Perera and Dikwella are not good opening options.

Anyway, Dikwella needs to realise that he cannot score runs against all the deliveries he faces and respect the good balls.
I think what he needs is a change in mindset . Hathurusinghe will probably help his on this

I think Hathurusinghe is impressed with the Danushka , so he will probably open the inning with Tharanga.

In the current context, Kusal Perara will be fitting into no.04 I guess.

1. Danushka
2. Tharanga
3. Mendis
4. Perera
5. Chandimal
6. Matthews
7. Asela
8. Thisara
9. Akila
