I have always said Karunaratne is a big LBW candidate, today he was LBW again for 1 run. For me, Kaushal and Thiri should open, which will give a chance for Chandi to bat at 5.

I always not prefer to open with Dimuth. His technique also not good. So better to open vth Thiri. But I would prefer if Kusal have been selected for the test team and him to open vth Kausal.

I too not impressed with the way Karunarathne proceed. LBWs, Edges. Lot to improve, nowhere near a test opening batsman. I think we should find a new guy :) Thiri is also not a success story as an opener (Karu has better avg than Thiri as an opener) So better we find a new one, it's an open position to all the new players,
