Big No No to Dhanushka Gunatilaka

Dhanushka Gunatilaka’s inclusion in Test team is very surprising. He seems to be not test material. Often he is guilty of trying to be over aggressive and giving away his wicket. In today’s match also he gifted away his wicket playing a loose shot. Sri Lanka can’t afford to have a week link in their test batting line up. Hathurusinghe has understood the value of Kusal Mendis and Dhanjaya De Silva but it’s really surprising to see him opting for Gunatilake. What about Asela Gunaratna.? He averages over 56 currently.  He has played some match winning innings in test matches in his short career. He is now not even in the test squad. Niroshan Dickwella is really good wicket keeper. But he should learn to build an innings value his wicket in test matches. More often than not,he also gifts his wicket playing loosely.
