Gunaratne does show that he

Gunaratne does show that he has the temperament to play a long innings. He doesnt look like someone who will get out by LBW or edges. He will play very well alongside Mathews in the middle order.
Our main problem in test matches is our top order. I just cannot see Karunaratne and Silva being in the team anymore. Mendis should continue to bat at 3. I reckon he will perform well back in sri lankan conditions and arguably weaker bowling from Bangladesh compared to what the aussies had when they toured SL. Same goes for Dhananjaya de Silva who will most likely after Gunaratne. I have no idea what kind of players SLC are thinking of putting as our openers, but i hope they do make a change because it is definitely our biggest weakness.
