Upul Tharanga had maintained much BETTER Test Average than the following automatic spots granted, fortunate favorites of SL Selectors & Hathurusinghe! Test career stats Since 2016 Jan:

Tharanga : 20 ing - 637 @ 35.38 Av - 2x100- 3 x50

Dimuth K: 47 ing - 1564 @ 34.00 Av - 4x100- 7 x50

Mathews : 33 ing- 941 r @ 28.51 Av - 1x100- 5 x50

KJPerera : 15 ing - 408 @ 27.20 Av - 1x100 - 1 x50

JK Silva : 26 ing- 654 @ 25.15 Av - 1x 100- 3 x50

Being the only SL player to put up 174* international score in Windie's conditions (in previous tour) & with his consistent superb form ( 1k+ odi runs @ 50 av in 2017 & in both formats of domestic Super -4 with 3 match winning tons & 4 fifty pluses, topping L/O batting av etc., etc).... Tharanga should have been selected for the Test squad Vs WI
