He has also played for Comilla Warriors in BPL before this. He plays regularly in domestic cricket in Sri Lanka. Perera's performance against Bangladesh is also great. Perera is able to give the team an explosive start in the opening. He has joined the Barisal team along with Gayle and Gurbaz. The team will probably be quite dependent on the opening. Such explosive openers might want to get the team off to a flying start in every match.
Like the last season, the world's best all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan will play for Barishal again. Apart from Shakib, Barishal are bringing many famous foreign cricketers to the team. They have signed West Indies’ legendary batter Chris Gayle. Besides, another Caribbean Rahkeem Cornwall has been included in the team also. Pakistan batter Iftikhar Ahmed will also be seen in Barishal's jersey. Fortune Barishal have also roped in Afghanistan's devastating opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz into the team.
Barishal participated in BPL last season as well. The all-around skill of Shakib Al Hasan helped the team to reach in final. But they failed to win the title. But Barishal played great throughout the tournament.
In terms of the coaching staff, Barishal keep faith in local coaches. Nazmul Abedin Fahim, the most popular coach of the country, will be seen as the head coach. Besides, another famous coach of the country, Mizanur Rahman Babul, will be the assistant coach.
