Please not Lahiru Thirimanne. Just because he's been dropped for a very long time now doesn't mean he randomly deserves another chance. Some things are best to be left and done with.

26 test matches one test century with an average below 25 ? that century is also against Bangladesh on flattest of surfaces where Bangladesh made 638. No more Thirimanna please.

With DdS in the team, SL doesn't have to go to Thirimanne again. If they think his experience is important, it is always better to bring him with the team. But not in the XI. I don't trust much in Tharanga too, he is inconsistent, his return will say that, but for now with his form I will have him in the team. So My XI would be
Tharanga
Dimuth
Kusal
Chandi
Angie
DdS
Niroshan
Sandakan
Pradeep
Vishwa
Herath (If Herath is not available then Malinda, just for the variety.)
.
As I told earlier, have Guna in the team, Tharanga's failures will earn him a place at the top automatically, within an year.
