Seeing all the struggle we've been having with the opening combination last few years, i can't understand why selector haven't given a shot at dananjaya.. He has shown that he has the technique and temperament of an opener and has played in that spot in his first class career.. Its only common sense to try him up front..

I think eventually Dimuth Karunaratne may be dropped so Dhananjaya de Silva can be used as an opener. Not sure what will happen to Tharanga we should let him open throughout all test matches as see how he does.

Yes! He is an opener batting out of spot in the middle order and I would have thought he was the obvious choice for the openers spot.

May be. but I think he really suits to play the role of thilan samaraweera. another young man should replace dimuth. minod is bit inconsistent where sadeera looks good.

but good to try him as a opener in next test if he prefers
