He should be given more chances. He adds extra option as a pace- wicket taking bowler, as well as a swashbuckling hitter down the order !

Definitely should be given more chances,
talking about pure brute strength,this guys one of the best hitters in SL,that coupled with his lively,skiddy,round arm,mid 130s bowling makes him a very handy option to have in your team also he can be a useful bowler at the death also because he generates reverse swing from his low action
