Despite being the MOST underutilized, underrated SL Test player (who faced most frequent layoffs & unsettlements by moved across the batting order);

Specialist front-order batter Upul Tharanga had maintained much BETTER Test Average than the following automatic spots granted fortunate favorites of SL Selectors! Test career stats Since 2016 Jan:

Tharanga : 20 ing - 637r @ 35.38 Av - 2x100- 3 x50
Dimuth K: 47 ing- 1564r @ 34.00 Av - 4x100- 7 x50
Mathews : 33 ing- 941 r @ 28.51 Av - 1x100- 5 x50
KJPerera : 15 ing- 408 r @ 27.20 Av - 1x100 - 1 x50
JK Silva : 26 ing- 654 r @ 25.15 Av - 1x 100- 3 x50

Being the only SL player to put up 174* international score in Windie's conditions (in previous tour) Tharanga should have been selected for the Test squad Vs WI.
