@crickfan, of course, Thirimnane whoild have done better job if he had given a chance to play.Paranavithana, Samaraweera, & Mathwes all failed to score more than 50 even in the 3 day game but they got a chance to play in test Match. despite scoring unbeaten 100 Thirimanne had to sit on the bench. He socred 100 against same bowlers against which experienced SL Star Batters failed to score 50 in both innngs.

Yeah better to give Thirimanne a chance to open. Maybe Dilshan can bat in the middle order in Test cricket??
