This guy should be remove like Kaushal Silva. After 6 years of experience. Just because he got few hundreds against ZIM to boost his avg still avg hovering around 35 after 48 matches

Dimuth Karunarathna was not very consistent in the past and even during current Indian test series. However, he has scored 1018 test runs in 2017, which is the highest by a Sri Lankan batsman and the 3rd highest by any batsman in the world in 2017.

Moreover, he has got just one century against Zimbabwe and Bangladesh.
His other centuries come against India, Pakistan, New Zealand and West Indies.

He is the leading runs scorer of 2017 mates. We don't have a team which has 20 players playing well. It is very rare 1/11 player score runs in our team

Do u want avg 40 player in the team??? This is ok for me who is less experience player like Dhannajaya, Kusal Mendis, Sadeera. But player who got 6 of experience and top order batter should have more than 47 avg in my opinion.

This dont mean that Anjelo, Chandimal are good either

Correct me if I wrong

@Cricket StatsGuru: Where did you come up with that number 47? Is that your age? lol. Dimuth's average in his last 10 test matches is 46.90 lol. Out of all SL batsmen only Dimuth and Chandimal average 40+ in 2017. Dickwella averages 38+. All the others including seniors average bellow 35. If you want to drop the ones who have scored the most in 2017 I don't know what to say.

Even Indian opener Murali Vijay's career test average was below 40 before this series although he has around 9 years of international experience.
