Saturday's match shapes as the biggest test of Munaweera's career. Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel have bloodied more hardened men than he, and a nervous start to international cricket and an awkward first dismissal cannot have boosted Munaweera's confidence greatly. Moreover, South Africa will have studied him closely in their team meetings. They will know he is, at present, over-reliant on boundaries to make a score. They will know he cuts and pulls well but drives poorly. They will endeavour to keep him on strike, knowing he has trouble rotating it, and the customary dose of newbie-abuse will no doubt be gleefully given as well.
"It's always going to be tough, especially when you're an opening batsman," captain Mahela Jayawardene said of the trial awaiting Munaweera. "It's a great experience for him to play one of the two best bowling combinations in the game right now. He has Dilshan at the other end to guide him and a couple of other senior batsmen to follow."
Not only will Munaweera's mettle be tested by bowlers much faster and capable of generating more bounce than he has encountered at home and on A-team tours, he will also be playing on a foreign surface. The Bloomfield Cricket Club pitch he has thrived on has a reputation for being low and slow. Both pitches in Hambantota so far have had plenty of bounce and carry, and South Africa's seamers will squeeze every inch of movement available as well.
One of Sri Lanka's biggest selection regrets has been the meandering career of Chamara Kapugedara. No one can doubt the batsman's talent, having seen it in spades in domestic cricket as well as in patches for the national team, but perhaps his failure to grow into a match-winner was hampered by inconsistency in selection and a tendency to bat him out of position. So far Munaweera far has avoided that fate.
"The good thing is that he's got a free hand. When you have a youngster coming into the set-up, there's not much pressure on you. You just go out there and enjoy yourself and back yourself to play your game. That's what is exciting about young cricketers coming in. We're just going to give him the license to go out there and enjoy himself."
