13. Sachith Pathirana
14.Dasun Shanaka
15.Vimukthi Perera(Left Arm Fast-Medium 135+)Tall Swing bowler who has bowling figures of-
2/45 againist Australia playing for Sri Lanka XI with an Econ of 2.72
2/27 againist Eng Lions playing for SL Pres. XI with an Econ of 2.25

VERY Economical player perfect for T20s and he provides more variety to the bowling unit being a left arm bowler plus a tall person 6 ft 1 in which means he gets extra bounce. But also a swing bowler averaging 26.91 in 62 First class matches and 24.70 in 36 List A matches and 28.07 in 14 T20s Matches.

Dont think kusal mendis should be in the t20 team. Also i dont think Tharanga will be dropped. Also where's Dickwella?

Upul Tharanga
Niroshan Dickwella / Kusal Perera
Dilshan Munaweera
Asela Gunaratne
Angelo Mathews
Chamara Kapugedera
Seekuge Prassana
Thisara Perera
Nuwan Kulasekera / Vikum Sanjaya
Lakshan Sandakan
Lasith Malinga

Milinda Siriwardana
Sachith Pathirana

If upul tharanga doesnt perform then kusal perera should take his place. The allrounders can be changed according to the conditions of the wicket.

Niroshan Dickwella is Injured and is out for two weeks or more

Upul Tharanga's International T20 average is 12.07 and 117 SR, no where near even in club standards in Sri Lanka.. On what basis he should be in team if Angelo is playing..

Agree with Suren 1998. Kusal Mendis should not be in the T20 team. He is moreover a test & ODI player. So, I would like to pick the squad as follows;

1) Upul Tharanga
2) Dilshan Munaweera
3) Asela Gunaratne
4) Chamara Kapugedera
5) Angelo Mathews
6) Kusal Perera (wk)
7) Thisara Perera
8) Seekkuge Prasanna
9) Nuwan Kulasekara
10) Lasith Malinga
11) Lakshan Sandakan
Others: Milinda Siriwardane, Dasun Shanaka, Vikum Sanjaya, Sachith Pathirana

Asela was our key batsman in last T20 series in Australia. So I think he must bat higher in the order. Further, as an experienced player I would like to give Tharanga another go in T20s as an open batsman. Kusal perera can bat at #6 where he will find it comfortable.

1. MDKJ Perera(wk)
2. D Munaweera
3. C Kapugedera
4. A Gunaratne
5. A Mathews(c)
6. M Sriwardene(vc)
7. T Perera
8. S Prasanna
9. N Kulasekara
10. L Malinga
11. L Sandakan

12. K Mendis
13. M Pushpakumara
14. V Sanjaya
15. V Perera
16. D Gunathilake

Note: it is considered that Mathews is fit. If not, M Sriwardene should be captain the side. Upul Tharanga should not be in the squad as he is not T20 player and he is a bad fielder. N Dickwella is not considered as he is injured.

I don't think Upul tharanga is suitable for T20s. Giving him more chances is really unfair for the other youngsters.

3. Chamara Kapugedara
4. Anjelo Mathews
5. Milinda Siriwrdene
6. Asela Gunaratne
