Thirimanne has failed

Thirimanne has failed consistently in test level & We were unable to see any significance performance from Koushal Silva after century against Pakistan in Galle. Although Dimuth was failed in Indian series his 150 against NZ & century against Pakistan will save his spot. Mubarak was unable to score at least half century in his last six innings. Tharanga still has his ugly out side the off stump problem. He needs fortunate at the start of his inning to score a big one. Although as openers Koushal & Dimuth have the correct technique they were unable to deliver in last series. Therefore we need to change openers. At the moment we need win rather than experiments. I believe Tharanga Paranawithana & Chamara Silva should come back to the team. We can't play 7 young batters in the team. We can get the service of those players another couple of years. At the same time we can give Thirimanne, Koushal, Tharanga to play in the A team to get their form.

My team;

1.Tharanga Paranawithana(As an opener he has shown his performances in this level & score runs quicker than Koushal)
2.Dimuth Karunarathna
3.Dinesh Chandimal
4.Chamara Silva(he is a good player for spinners & we can get his service couple of years until A team players further groom)
5.Anjelo Mathews
6.Milinda Siriwardene
7.Kusal Janith Perera.

other 2 batters in the team Upul Tharanga(as he didn't get consistently chances in his 2nd comeback) & Koushal Silva.
Thirimanne can play in the A team as no.3 batsmen. This is a good selection of youth & experience.

A team Test batting lineup;

1.Udara Jayasundara
2.Dhanajaya de Silva
3.Lahiru Thirimanne
4.Roshen Silva
5.Ashan Priyanjana
6.Kithruwan Vithanage
7.Niroshan Dickwella
8.Asela Gunarathna

These selections are not unjustice for the players.
