Then look at the first innings and we can comment that Kitha and Priyanjan stand out when all the rest of the batsman fails .

Kitha 62/25 = 2.48 more times
Priyanjan 49/25 = 1.96 more times

Then surely u have to give huge credit and praise for Kitha 2.48 times and Priyanjan 1.96 times more than Dickwella when considering the overall match and the situation isn't it Byron ??? :P :P

Also u could not come up with an argument that situation in first innings is not important when all other players failing if not for this two the score card will be a double digit score !!!.

Surod. Stop over analysing.. why you want to go into aggregate???? Are for real? I think you have wasted more time on doing averages instead of looking at overall picture. You are one of those people who go and look for anything to support your argument. Just relax mate.
I was merely commenting on the score . If you were paying any attention... you would have noticed too!! ON OUR SECOND INNING...where we needed someone to stand up...after Tharanga.. Dickwella scored most runs... as a batsman.. leaving out Kaushal aside.

niroshan dickwella will get his debut against india because of sangakkara's injury during the practice.

MY SQUAD TO TOUR INDIA.

kusal
munaweera
danushka
thirimanne
chandimal
kithruwan
mathews
kapugedera
dilshan

kulasekara
maharoof
dammika/eranga
vishwa

seekuge
lakshan/tharidu

i don't know wheather dickwella will be a good option instead sanga. wicket keeper job should be done by kusal or chandi. mahela & ranga should be rested. we don't want further injuries to the seniors before world cup. mali, lakmal, thisara, sanga have already injured & uncertainty of the sachi. we need kusal get in to form. also muna & danu among the runs these days. nice to see how they go in international level. this is the best oppottunity for both these two to get some confidence against weekest bowling attack in the world. also chandi, thiri, kitha, kapu should get this golden opportunity to perform well. kule & dili didn't perform well in recent maches. therefore both should get a chance + experience to the team. with the abcence of mali & lakmal nice to see who is our 3rd best seamer.(dammika or eranga). even nuwan will not be a bad choice with his extra pace. it is essential to check who is our best left armer before world cup. thrindu/koushal one of them should be in the world cup squad as a surprice package.

Whether or not Mubarak was given or not given an opportunity in the A side is irrelevant. We all know what happened when he got selected??? Even against a mediocre West Indies A side he couldn't cut it!! I believe he had been given more chances to put his case... but delivered nothing. He has passed his use by date... and by giving him more chances . he is depriving others who are much younger an opportunity to show his mettle.

Because my opinion when Sanga is fit he will definitely take over the gloves and if he could not take gloves Chandi and Kusal can take the gloves. So it will be a waste when building for the wc to experiment with Dickwella.

But it will be better to give a full time batsman a go or a fast bowler like Vishwa Fernando or spinners like Tharindu Kausal or Lakshan Rangika have a chance because we cannot guarantee that Lasith Malinga and Sachitra Senanayake will guarantee their wc spots up to now.

I agree that Dickwella did really well with the keeping duties but his batting we cannot be satisfied up to now after his maiden test innings and also in the SL A matches against WI A up to now.

SLCB should not have squeezed in a tournament and risked the players just for the money they get from BCCI, and even their captain Dhoni is not playing the first 3 ODI's, so if so Sri Lanka should play their A team as well and let the full team prepare for the previously scheduled England tour.

Danushka Gunatilake should try out definitely as his stats in the last tour to England and Ireland is phenomenal considering the conditions. Tharindu Kaushal is another one who is also a capable batter. So he is worth backup spinner to Herath in the touring world cup squad and he is somewhat mystery to the world cricket.

Byron look at the score card properly if you haven't see it and commenting

In both innings aggregate of all the batsman

Tharanga 56
Dimuth 32
Warnapura 13
Mubarak 23

PRIYANJAN 49
KITHURUWAN 62
DICKWELLA 25

So how do you say Kitha and Priyanjan didn't make an impact and Dicwella make some runs.

Sure both players did not make an impact but how did u compare and tell dickwella make some runs.????????

He has not batted down since he is a wicket keeper his normal position is 7th. In the second innings night watch man cam that is why he batted at no 8.

Dinith I agree Gamage is a good bowler but in my opinion if we need a fast bowler for the tour better to give that position to Vishwa Fernando. He also a good bowler in addition he is a left arm bowler which will add little bit of variation to the seam bowling line up.

If this true then it will be a huge blow for SL as SL as already have several key players injured.

If Sanga is replace by some body it would have been better to give that to a full time batsman or a bowler than giving Dickwella a chance because we all ready have two full time wicket keepers like Chandimal and Kusal Perera in the squad.
