for sure it should be munaweera nd TM. they can give us the blistering starts. mahela has experience to carry the good work. Mahela in slpl too batted in the middle.

Mahela should bat in middle bcz his experience can control bowlers lyk ajmal, ashwin swarn
( He did it well in ODI series against pakistan )

TM and Munuweera combination will be a blasting one to opponent team. In our own soil we have a great chance to win.

b'coz of two reasons Munaweera and Mahela,

1.in recent past Dilshan's strike rate is very low n struggling to get runs,

2.Mahela is not that good when he bats down the order or at least he's a better opener than a number four batsman. I think in T20 format at least a batsman must have a combination of average n strike rate over 150 mark(120SR+30avg or 130SR+20avg)

I Think that Maiya and Munaweera make a good opening pair simply coz i feel there needs to be a mix of caution and aggression

Thisara Perera(LH) with Dilshan(RH).

We should try to

1)Keep the RH LH combination.

2)Use Thisara's ability to clear the in-field during the power play.

3)Give Thisara more time in the middle.

Thanks for your comment Uppercut_7. Munaweera can fill in that spot.
