Though it was a fantastic draw at Eden gardens earlier today , slc need to address few issues in order compete with india in nagpur test. It is sure that now thirimanne can’t be sacked from playing 11 for second test. But chandimal coming in at no.5 doesn’t help teams cause. Because he takes time to settle and by the time he settles, he may run out of partners.So chandimal would be ideal at no. 4 and mathews at no.5 would be good as he scores at brisk rate.
May be if there is a chance to remove thirimannne then slc should go for it.
My playing 11 for nagpur test ,
I’m from india but i heard a lot about roshene silva potential . So if chandimal, roshene silva play long marathon innings then definitely am sure kohli and his pacers doesn’t have answers. Then mathews, shanaka, dickwella, dilruwan even herath will boost sl score more forward.
