However, Danushka Gunathilaka will most likely be afforded another game as Kusal Janith Perera, who was expected to make a comeback for the final game, has not recovered from the hamstring injury he sustained during the practice game on the 22nd of March.

Drop thisara since kulasekara can do the same or more. And I think we should open with Dananjaya and Tharanga as kusal perera's wekness against the off-spinners might be exposed by the bangladesh.

Our bolwing looks very ordinary and need more wicket taking options.

All the best lions, hope they will safeguard our pride

I agree with this selection. I'll use Thisara more of a hard hitting batter lower down the order. Only for a few overs as when a new batsman come to the wicket. Never to open or bowl at death overs.

Aponsu will be playing for Sri Lanka Under-23s against Bangladesh Under-23s in the semifinal of ACC Emerging Teams Cup on same day, Saturday!
