Thisara Perera proved to be Pakistan's Nuisance again, as he wrecked Pakistan's top order on day one of the Third Test, i.e. after troubling them in the Twenty20s and the One-Dayers.
Pakistan had enough of Thisara Perera already. It all began in Hambantota where his electrifying cameo down the order shored up Sri Lanka's batting on a slow pitch. In Pallekele, he took six wickets in the Second ODI to turn the game Sri Lanka's way. Then he produced a Hat-Trick two games later in Colombo to trigger off a monumental collapse to match the unpredictable Pakistan of the old. He was back at Pallekele for his first Test of the Series and it shouldn't have surprised too many that he proved to be Pakistan's nuisance again.
