Sri Lanka can't really have a go at Kusal Mendis & Kusal Perera.
But what about Dimuth's inconsistency? 2 centuries in 10 games but still averages around 31.
What about Thirimanne & Kaushal Silva?

Man those are awfully poor returns! I still cant believe folks are having ago at Chandi - that is a sensational return. Yes openers are a concern as is Thiri.

THIRIMANNE AND KAUSAL SHOULD HAVE BEEN DROPPED A LONG TIME AGO... I M NOT SUPRISED AT ALL WITH THIRIMANNES STATS IN WHICH HE AVERAGES 18 while his test career average is under 24 even after scoring a 155 not out innings against weak Bangladesh as he was lucky through out the whole innings (Could have been even worse if not for this hundred ) .

IF WE ARE TO SEE THIRIMANNE S STRIKE RATE IT IS EVEN WORSE, HE IS A PLAYER WHO CANT HIT THE BALL IN GAPS AND ALWAYS STRUGGLES TO GET THE BALL OF THE SQUARE..

HIS GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT IS THAT HE HAS THE HIGHEST DOT BALL PERCENTAGE AMONG TEST AND ODI BATSMAN IS SOMETHING THAT HIS FANS COULD NOT BE PROUD OF .... ITS TIME TO DROP THIRIMANNE.. he is not international quality player...

PLS GIVE HIS SPOT TO DESERVING PLAYERS LIKE LAHIRU MILANTHA OR MINOD BHANUKA.
