I still dont agree with their move. Sandakan doesnt pick up a lot of wickets during a match, and although Prassana is economical he too doesnt pick up wickets. Pushpakumara should have at least been a reserve. I think spin is very important for our team because our fast bowlers are not up to scratch. Even Malinga hasnt been playing well in the IPL

The most luckiest to be in the team are "SIR DON DINESH BRADMAN CHANDIMAL", NUWAN STARC SEKERA, AND SURANGA WASIM LAKMAL and the unluckiest are sadeera samarawickrama n wanidu hasaranga AND ASITHA FERNANDO.

Fair points regarding Bowling.

But: Whenever SL performs badly, we bring in Kule to save us. And to be fair, he has the ability to keep it tight, in addition to being handy with the bat. The risk ofcourse is that he can go for 10-12 runs per over.

Malinga: Yes, he has a huge injury cloud hanging over him. But SL is not in a position to not include Malinga in a squad, if he is available. He can also help out the other bowlers when he is in the field. We just have to accept that Mali is close to expiry date now. Sadly..

However: We should have taken a gamble on Pradeeps place: Brought in raw pace and bounce from Lahiru Kumara or Chameera.

Sandakan: He is a wicket taking option: He should be allowed to go for a few runs, and SL needs a wickettaking option in the middle overs. India has not faced him, perhaps he can cause their lineup some issues.
Seeku: He has the ablility to keep it tight in the middle oves, and give us 24 runs in 9balls.. That is valuable.

Batting: We have a good lineup. Dickwella will be key to get us of to starts, and we have to bat around UT, Chandi and Mendis.

Fielding: Do not get me started... We are f#"ked :(

Lack of a quality spinner is a major weakness. Hope Sankakan has improved his control

Dasun Shanaka and Pushpakumara was our biggest omissions. We havent got an attacking spin bowler that is also economical. I understand England conditions wont favour to spin but i really think Pushpakumara deserved a chance instead of Sandakan. We also havent got another seam bowling allrounder apart from Thisara. Shanaka should have been selected as back up. He performed well in the provincial tournament as well which is a shame. I dont think Dhananjaya would have been selected because we already have players to take his role.

For the two matches in Scotland we should use our best team.

Upul Tharanga
Niroshan Dickwella
Kusal Mendis
Dinesh Chandimal
Angelo Mathews
Asela Gunaratne
Thisara Perera
Seekuge Prassana
Suranga Lakmal
Nuwan Kulasekera
Lasith Malinga

Who ever underperforms in both games, say for example Kusal Mendis, then Kapugedara should take his place and play the two warm up matches against NZ and AUS. This is also the same for the openers and the bowlers.

I am not sure why Tharanga and Kulasekara in the squad instead of Dhanuska who is more dynamic and Vikum Sanjaya who can swing the ball unlike Kulasekara who is not the same bowler anymore. I think Sri Lanka would be the only side who has named two players who are not clean hitters of the ball. Sri Lanka is going to struggle in power play overs with lack of choices. As far as I can see only Kusal, Kapugedara, Asela, Thissara and Angelo who are capable of clearing boundaries. Where's other teams are packed with clean hitters. Niroshan lacks discipline and probably meekly surrender his wicket trying to invent shots. It will be interesting to know how many catches Chandimal and Tharanga going to drop collectively.
