Either one will do for me provided they tighten up their batting a bit. Right now both are just waving the bat around like children which is simply not good enough for test cricket. But that aggression at #6/7 is important to swing games just need some control.

Interestingly I am not sure if Kusal Perera has actually kept in tests and they way he gets injured, not sure he can withstand the rigors of wicket keeping for any length of time.

I would not Hesitate to Try Sadeera Samarawickrama.. Excellent keeper and classical batsman who can change the game and does not play stupid shots like Dikwella who never learns.. and always bats like headless chicken...

Niroshan Dickwella is an utter Failure. he is Squandering all the opportunities he is getting. if he can't make runs no use of having him as the Wicket Keeper.

Looking at the votes thus far as I write it's neck and neck and hard to split the two.

I'm not sure who is the better keeper as here different opinions.
But no need to play both in same Test side

Dickwella is the best wicket keeper & kusal is the best batsmen but for test cricket you need the best wicket keeper

Don't add Tharanga to the middle. He is a opening batsman.We need pure middle order player like kapugedera to that position.

Don't add Mathews to the squad as well. Recently he unable to score a big runs when sri lanka needed him to deliver.
