I'll go with
1)Dickwella
2)Dananjaya
3)KJP/Gunathileke
4)Mendis
5)Asela
6)Mathews/Kapugedara
7)Dasun/Thisara/Siriwardene/prasanna
8)Kulasekara/Pathirana/Sanajaya
9)Malinga
10)Pradeep/Chameera/Kumara/Lakmal
11)Sandakan/Vandersay

But Im sure selectors aren't going to try Dananjaya up top... In this lineup, i'd say Dickwella and the no3 to go very hard in the powerplay.. Dananjaya and Mendis to play their normal game...

CRICKET STAR ANALYSIS 's picture

It funny how Chandimal is been named given his trouble to score hundred as TOP 4 is the engine room to score big runs, I hope Chandimal is dropped from national odi /t20 squads as I feel his strike rate is a big concern for other players as he makes slow fifties and fails to capitalise to make a hundred which is very important as no 4 batsmen to be the anchor but his ultra defensive batting has been a problem for the team.

My squad and team for champions trophy .'
1) Niroshan dickwella
2) sadeera samarawickrame (right hander)
3) dhanushka gunathilake
4)kusal mendis
5)Angelo mathews
6)asela gunaratne
7)kusal perera
8)dasun shanaka
9)thissara perera
10) asitha fernando
11) sandakan
12)lahiru kumara
13)seekuge prassanna
14)Lasith malinga/(if available)//Amila aponso
15)chameera

Please don't include mediocre bowlers like kulasekera, lakmal and PLS NO CHANDI BECAUSE IT WILL BE A ANOTHER THIRIMANNE STORY IF WE TAKE CHANDI TO THIS MIST IMPORTANT TOURNAMENT.
