No we need him to bat long innings and score more runs rather than being more aggressive. he always offer his wicket to the opposition very easily making foolish strokes in aggressive manners after making 20, 30 runs we don't need someone go down like that. if you are going to be more aggressive your career will be very short because while being aggressive without your knowledge you will start to cross the line and you get demerit points from the icc, that will be more harmful to his career,so you have to be very careful when you continue to be aggressive, but you need to be a little bit aggressive while being humble with other players and the spectators then you can be a very good cricketer.

don't spoil young players with position of power at early stage in their career. Chandimal and Lahiru are good examples of what happens to players who were given captinancy at a early age.

I dont think a youngster should be given that amount of responsibility simply just because of his aggressive nature.

The issue here is we need to give the captaincy to someone who makes the starting eleven. Right now it's questionable if Chandi, Tharanga and Tissera should be in the team. Yes I know all had a good tour of Bangladesh but not sure this would work on flat 300+ tracks. Our first choice captain Anji never makes it on to the field.

So I would use this as an opportunity to try out a younger player and giving him the experience now rather than the musical chairs we have been playing and getting no where.

Angelo Matthews was named Captain when he was 25 years old and it's not the age that matters it the approach to the game and mindset. And we need an Aggressive and youthful captain for T20S and that`s Niroshen Dickwella and we have tried many experienced captains in T20s all have failed to try to replace Angelo Matthews so it`s time to give the youngster a go.

Niroshen Dickwella is the only consistent player to feature in all formats in the last year
