The Best XI the selectors can choose for the 2nd Test Against Pakistan:

1.  Kaushal Silva(Right-hand Batsman)/Sadeera Samarawickrama (Right-hand Batsman)(Best replacement for Upl Tharanga)(Debut) 
2.  Dimuth Karunaratne (Left-hand Batsman)(Right-Arm Medium)
3. Lahiru Thirimanne (Vice-Captain)(Possible unavailable)/Sadeera Samarawickrama (Right-hand Batsman)(Best replacement for Upl Tharanga)(Debut) 
4.  Kusal Mendis (Right-hand Batsman)
5.  Roshen Silva(Right-hand Batsman)(Debut)
6.  Dinesh Chandimal (Right-hand Batsman)(Captain)(Highest Averaging 50 at no.6)
7.  Niroshan Dickwella(Left-hand Batsman)(Wicket-keeper) 
8.  Rangana Herath (Slow left-arm orthodox)
9.  Suranga Lakmal(Right-Arm Medium-Fast)
10.Nuwan Pradeep (Right-Arm Fast-Medium)
11.Vishwa Fernando (Left-Arm Fast-Medium)

Sri Lanka will probably look to strengthen there Batting By Replacing Dilruwan Perera with Roshen Silva

Also, Sadeera and Dimuth did have a good partnership of 300+ againist the England Lions recently.

Kaushal Silva failed as an opening batsman playing poor shots but with an inexperienced side, he is like to get a few matches.
Dilruwan Perera failed as wicket taking bowler as he leaked a lot of runs when he was the first spinner to bowl and prove an ineffective bowler and not a wicket taking bowler even with all this experience.

Dimuth Karunaratne can be a 5th bowler as he bowls part-time Right arm medium so they need to strengthen their batting also with the Pink bowl tests its likely to help seam bowlers more than spinners.
If Lahiru Thirimanne (Vice-Captain) is injured and can`t play then
My XI-
1.  Sadeera Samarawickrama (Right-hand Batsman)(Best replacement for Upl Tharanga)(Debut) 
2.  Dimuth Karunaratne (Left-hand Batsman)(Right-Arm Medium)
3.  Kusal Mendis (Right-hand Batsman)
4.  Roshen Silva(Right-hand Batsman)(Debut)
5.  Dinesh Chandimal (Right-hand Batsman)(Captain)
6.  Niroshan Dickwella(Left-hand Batsman)(Wicket-keeper) 
7.  Dilruwan Perera (Slow Right-arm Off-Spin)
8.  Rangana Herath (Slow left-arm orthodox)
9.  Suranga Lakmal(Right-Arm Medium-Fast)
10.Nuwan Pradeep (Right-Arm Fast-Medium)
11.Vishwa Fernando (Left-Arm Fast-Medium)
