Is Dickwella good enough to play as a keeper-batsman in the Test side?

Dickwella is a bad wicket-keeper of spin bowling. Appealing like crazy is not wicket-keeping. I do not know what the coaches are doing.
I would let Chandimal keep wickets and replace Dickwella with a better batsman like Gunathilaka.

He is not test material.Since he has become our test keeper we are struggling big time. Chandimal should don the gloves and Dhana should bring in to the side to bat at no 6. He is too good to be ignored.

Chandimal isn't a safe keeper. puts down too many chances...He's better in the outfield.. Dickwella is still new, so calling him to be dropped is not wise, just what slc has been doing to all youngsters...

I think its best Chandi is the keeper. I might be mistaken but i believe he averages higher when he is a wicket keeper batsman. Niroshan Dickwella should be the specialist batsman. I think he is in the perfect position in the Test team. I dont think he should consider opening in Tests. Not sure about Dimuth Karunaratnes place in the team. He did almost get a fifty but for the amount of time he has played for SL you expect him to be our best batsman, which he is not. I think in the future Samarawickrama may take his place.
