Would go with this XI, TBH:
In doing a quick cricinfo search, it appears my perception of Perera was created by one good innings with the ball and limited overs form. Still better than Pradeep in my book.
Thisara Perea done nothing of note in test matches. Nuwan Pradeep has quite a bit of pace, and by reports can touch 150k now. SL will need a bowler who can bowl short sharp spells, to compelemt tight medium pace of Kule, Eranga and Mathews. But the minus point is we don't need both Prasad and Nuwan Pradeep.
