Tharanga should believe & keep on fighting in domestic cricket.But atm the highest runs getter Tharanga Paranavitana might push him back . If SL selectors tries to take some risks then tharanga has another competitors udawaththa to surpass . the only edge tharanga has over these two batters is the wonders he did vs Eng in Eng in the shorter format of the game . but i dunno how much it effect the test cricket cause we have seen how much dhoni is a flop in this highest level of cricket .

Yes. 92 and 45 at SSC vs Pakistan. And Upul Tharanga then found himself dropped for the tour to New Zealand for his match-winning contribution. An extraordinary selection blunder by the Jayasuriya-led panel, especially as Tharanga had scored an 83 vs South Africa at Galle a month earlier.

Such has been the capricious nature of SL team selection over the past couple of years.

Then last year Tharanga, dropped again, after a 46 and a 48 at Pallekele vs Pakistan, batting at 3 in Sangakkara's absence, for the first two Tests vs India that followed. Recalled to open the innings in the 3rd Test at SSC after a string of failures from the Silva/Karunaratne combination. And overlooked in all formats since.

Let's hope the new Sanath-led panel can redress some of the past injustices and perceived favouritism that has characterised past SL team selection - ahead of the tour to England and the home series against Australia in July/August.
