Uncapped Thikshila in Sri Lanka T20 squad for series against South Africa?

Sri Lanka are looking towards the future as they are said to have finalized a new look T20 squad for the upcoming South African tour, which features uncapped Chilaw Marian's all rounder Thikshila de Silva, NCC openers Sandun Weerakkody and Niroshan Dickwella and a few new faces...

Nice to see some young faces, though I feel Dasun Shanaka is being abbot hard done by this considering he was considered the answer to our fast bowling all rounder problem. Weerakkody and Dickwella deserve their places.

But why is Prasanna picked again? The guy is a constant failure at international level. Why not pick another leg spinner? Is Vandersay in the squad? Why not? He's taking wickets.

As for Rambukwella, he's young but his attitude doesn't seem good. He's already gotten in trouble quite a few times.

Gunaratne should be a good fit in this format, bowling wise.
Looking forward to seeing the full squad.

Great to see youngsters coming in.I think we should rest (perhaps drop some) allmost all the test players and field a completly new look team under a new captain for these 2 T20 seriess in SA and AUS as we got nothing to lose.
