Is it apt for SLC to give ODI and T20 captaincy to Tharanga?

What is aim of slc in giving odi captaincy to upul tharanga ? If he bats top order one among dickwella, gunathilaka has to sacrifice their place. If he bats middle order he can't score runs. It would be ideal to try the capataincy with wicket-batsman like niroshan dickwella.

For india odi series, slc needs to play Jeffrey vandersay, lakshan sandakan as lead spinners. Pace dept comprises of lasith, chameera, vikum sanjaya/binura fernando. Expecting viswa fernando to perform in odi is useless because he should have some raw pace other wise indian batsman will attack him.
