  1. He looks like someone who favours pace and bounce. Wasn’t convincing first when he played that domestic tournament. This is exactly why players should pick based on the conditions. Thirimanna, Jeewan, Siriwardhena all are good at local conditions but fails whenever they face pace and bounce. On the other hand Dickwella, Danushka prefer pace. This is where our selectors failed to pick correct players for correct conditions.. Avishka’s innings and bench players like Oshada shows us we are in safe hands for the coming years as well.
