I saw Dasun Shanaka bat last season in 3 or 4 domestic T20 matches and in each occasion he came in at no.6 or 7 and smashed every bowler from the very first ball and hit massive sixes out of the grounds. Seriously, those sixes were out of the grounds.

He only made 30s and 40s but those runs were high impact runs. What really impressed me was that he hit sixes quite effortlessly, as if he was pulverizing a U13 school side.

He's blessed with enormous power but is also a sweet timer, somewhat like Milinda Siriwardena but with more power. It does not surprise me that he hit two hundreds this season, from no.4 position.

Marcian you are probably one of those who wrote comments which makes real sense. To be honest I like reading your comments. I wish you could put put your two cents worth often. Now please don't get to much ahead of yourself and start writing like some here who writes utter garbage. Comments like hiring geriatric Duncan Fletcher as our future coach? I believe Duncan is looking for a Nursing home to check in. I think coaching is will be the furthest in his mind.
I agree Dasun is seriously good talent. I probably think he should replace one dimensional Thissara Perera.
