  • Mike

    Should be include Malinda Warnapura in test squad. He is a good test opener in Sri lanka. Why selection panel is not include Malinda Warnapura? He is shown good performance in international level. Why selection panel is favour Paranavithana? Is he SSC player? Should be drop Tharanga Paranavithana.
