Dhananjaya de silva consistency against Australia to a 3-0 whitewash in Sri Lanka

Like Chase, Dhananjaya has enjoyed a bright start to his Test career. Like Chase he was picked as an all-rounder rather than a specialist batsman. And like Chase it is with the bat that he has made his presence felt.
The seemingly ever-smiling 25-year-old consigned Australia to a 3-0 whitewash in Sri Lanka with an elegant 129 in his home town of Colombo, punctuated with dashing cuts, pulls and drives. He’s struggled a bit for consistency since then, but the talent is clearly there.

Nine Tests, 709 runs at 41.70.
Two centuries. Top score of 129.
