Dimuth Karunaratne broke a bone in his right hand during practice today. Kusal Janith Perera will leave today for Australia to be on standby for Dimuth.

    Kusal Janith shuld be the one to replace Dimuth, not Swekuge

    Only thing I’m worried is we just managed to get a decent opening pair building up, but its true Thirimanne’s strike rate is not so favouring SL in 1st 10 overs, and he was not that in control too. KJP will be good option to open bt i question only his consistancy, and do we really need two aggressive batsmen as openners (as AUS)??? Good option will be play Kusal on Sunday, if he fails, let Tharanga step in for middle order.
