I rate Tharanga as high as anyone here but seriously, it is high time he is dropped. All good players can and do tend to get dropped when not in form. IT is not a slight or an insult (which is how it is taken in India) but just an indication that at that particular time and place, there is someone else who can do a better job. It doesn't mean that Tharanga cannot go on to be a very good batsman at all. But keeping ATapattu on the bench is bordering on stupidity now.
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.
