Why is Sohan Boralessa sidelined from the Uthura team?

It's saddening to know how Sohan has been sidelined in spite of him being one of the most admired and effective bowlers in the local arena. It also needs to be understood that Uthura team does not have a great side, which their results had shown... 

He has played 44 First class matches, with a best bowling figure of 9/47 at an average of 22.20 and overall wicket haul of 175 and six T20 matches avg 12.44. What i don't understand is that while Uthura has been doing very badly in the ongoing SLPL they still do not wish to give this guy an opportunity. Personally i feel he would do better than Janaka Gunarathne.

You would also like to check the stats on his last game he played against NCC from 16-18 March, 2012 on the following link, he got 6 wickets in that game. I have been following this guy during his school days when he played for St Peters, and in most of the encounters Angelo Mathews and Sohan Boralessa has played against each other, Angelo has been his bunny... nevertheless it is disgusting to see Deccan Chargers of SLPL (Uthura) keeping this guy in the bench... Wishing All success to BORA and praying to god that he gets stronger and not be another lost Asset for Sri Lankan cricket!

When I heard that he was picked for this team I was so happy because it looked more than certain on paper that he'd be picked for every game!!

Guess I was wrong! So many nothing spinners have made the national team while this guy is virtually unknown! Sad for our cricket!
