My Sri Lanka ODI XI against Pakistan in the 4th ODI-
1. Sadeera Samarawickrama(Batsman)
2. Niroshan Dickwella(W)(Batsman)
3. Danushka Gunathilaka(Batsman)
4. Lahiru Thirimanne(Batsman)
5. Upul Tharanga(Batsman)(Captain)
6. Thisara Perera(All-Rounder)(Right-arm Medium)/Milinda Siriwardana(All-Rounder)(Slow left-arm orthodox)
7. Akila Dananjaya (Right-Arm Off/Leg-Spin)(Showed he can be a Bowling All-Rounder in the 1st ODI)
8. Vishwa Fernando (Left-Arm Fast-Medium)(140Km/h +)
9. Dushmantha Chameera(Right-arm Fast)(145Km/h +)
10.Jeffrey Vandersay(Right-Arm Leg-Spin)
11.Lahiru Gamage(Right-arm Medium-Fast)(125-140Km/h)

My Personal View-
I believe both Kusal Mendis and Dinesh Chandimal should be Test Specialist Batsman as they need to gain confidence before they play in the ODI. Like How Lakshan Sandakan is now only a Test Specialist Bowler where he is gaining experience and confidence.

Munna Salman, I must say I agree with you bro even though you're from India. I watched the game, sadly I felt that none of them (Tharanga, Chandimal Thirimanne) tried to take Pakistan bowling or not even tried to rotate the strike or try something to put them off. I can understand if it was others but we are talking about most senior batsmen in to side playing like school boys. It's not good enough making runs at the expense of gobbling up too many balls.

You can't blame these three players for that. Because that's how they bat. As my Physics teacher is to say"You can't get blood from a stone". This problem is created and the blame should be put fairly and squarely on selectors lack of ability to select a team based on horses for courses.

When they do that we will see the difference it makes. But my question is whether they think that way?
