Lakshan Sandakan and Malinda Pushpakumara should both be selected

Amila should be given a chance rather than trying out half bowlers, He is very accurate and consistent. He proved his class against Aus.

Can't agree with the majority here... Aponso definitely bowled superbly in Australian tour but it was on helpful conditions.. England will dish out flat batting tracks and im sure off spinners will be murdered.. Legspinners are more unpredictable and turn the ball more and both ways... So definitely legspinners are the way to go (even the ipl shows that) on flat pitches.. Sandakan is the best option, vandersay also not far behind..

Amila is the most accurate and consistent out of the lot. Its shame that he is being dropped after the AUS season for no reason. Sandakan is not accurate and he will go for runs in English conditions

Aponso & Sandakan , no doubt ,the future of SL spin authority, but the England's pitch reports say Sandakan

Sandakan is in fact very accurate for a wrist spinner.. Besides, he pics wickets with his bad bowls cuz the batsmen have no idea which way the bowl is turning... Id definitely have Aponso if ct17 was in Asia, but in England, not so sure... It would be like playing herath.. He couldn't do anything much in England in the last tour, because he got zero help from the pitches.. Besides, i think selectors will probably play pathirana, in that case no spot for another offspinner

Aponso deserved a chance and I cannot believe we just forgot about him after that one series but England is not the place to give him another chance. I would take a punt with a leggie.
