It doesn't matter whether you are wicket keeping or not. All players should be able to perform to their maximum potential. I would like to see Dickwella go aggressive for the first 8 or 9 overs, then just go run a ball afterwards. He is more than capable to getting hundreds and wicket keeping aswell, that's what SLC expects from him.

When something is going good, no need to fix it .. dickwella is doing a superb job and the last thing we need is for him to play an innings like the one dekock played that day... He just has to get more greedy for runs and put a larger value on his wicket... Attack every ball thats in his ark.. He gets out by attacking a ball that he usually cannot pit away for a boundary... so yeah, just keep doing what he's doing but be a bit more selective...

Niroshan Dickwella batting is a treat to watch, so I think he should be more aggressive in the first powerplay like what Romesh Kaluwitharana did in 90s.

More of the same from Dickwella - we desperately need a spark in the batting and this guy has found something so let him play with it - he can be a real start given he is also a wicket keeper.
