Keeping Dickwella on tour and not playing him ‘will teach him a harsh lesson’ — de Mel

Sri Lanka’s chief selector Ashantha de Mel has hinted in a recent interview that Niroshan Dickwella could be axed from the side but retained in the squad.

“Keeping him (Niroshan Dickwella) out of the side is not going to help anyone. Probably we will keep him on the tour but not play him. That will teach him a harsh lesson. If you just leave him out and don’t look after, that is of no use. Just throwing out players is not the best thing because you have identified his skill. One thing is that his wicket keeping is top class. But it is frustrating to see him throw away his wicket.”
