Eventhough Dickwella does not seem to suit for the opening spot in tests his aggression in batting may help us.If you look at the best test teams that have played always had a good strokemaker at the top..for example Matthew Hayden for Aus, Shewag for Ind, Jayasuriya for SL etc ...So I think trying Dickwella is fair enough but all this work well in our favour only if he plays smart and waiting for balls in his zone and not going for all like he does in ODIs..

I think its best that Dickwella tries the opening position with Karunaratne. If it doesnt work we have others like Tharanga.

Niroshan Dickwella
Dimuth Karunaratne
Kusal Mendis
Asela Gunaratne
Dinesh Chandimal
Upul Tharanga
Dilruwan Perera
Lakshan Sandakan/Malinda Pushpakumara
Rangana Herath
Lahiru Kumara
Suranga Lakmal

I think Top 6 players and bottom 3 are definite players that are going to play.The main issue is whether SL will go with an extra batsman (Dhananjaya) or the extra spinner (Sandakan/Pushpakumara). Dhananjaya also bowls so it will be interesting to see who SL will choose.
