Kusal Perera
(Sri Lankan Cricketer)

If you’re Sanath Jayasuriya fan, you will see a glimpse of the legend in Kusal Perera. Idolizing Jayasuriya, Perera switched his batting stance from a right-handed to a left-handed batsman at the age of 13. Like his idol, he bats aggressively in the top order. For his swashbuckling displays with the bat, Perera has established himself in the limited-over setups for Sri Lanka.
