Cricket Statsguru believe Sanath make a big blunder of selection here. Better if he has gone with the second combination.

Dickwella coming from an injury we don't know his form. He played some good knocks before but his shots selection are very poor.

Sadakan has always inconsistent.

No proper off spinner in the squad. It would have been satisified with Dilruwan in the squad. Also Gunathilaka is in good form lately and can be a part time off spinner and a great fielder also who can motivate the whole team.

Really though Pushpakumara could make it to the squad. I guess SL doesnt want someone to replace Herath.

Suren No Puspe here. We need an experience one. Puspe havent played any matches for SL so suddenly throwing him to a very important tournament like this is not suitable.

Suren which combination do u prefer? Seems most people like the first though I dont like it

1st one.. I don't mind the 2nd option but the 1st is best... As i thought, selectors knew offspinners won't be effective in England.... Its pretty obvious.. What i don't like is filling the substitutes with spinners... Pathirana, siriwardene, akila dananjaya, dilruwan,etc... They should have picked dasun at least as a substitute...
I think selectors have picked a pretty solid squad under the circumstances.. The only shocker to me is that they have completely forgotten dananjaya de silva.. Other than that, its ok.. Vikum sanjaya should be in the squad though..
