Too many all-rounders. Vikum Sanjaya should have been picked instead of either Lakmal or Pradeep

So the provincial tournament was pretty useless i guess. Only Kapu got his spot and akila dananjaya on standby. Not even Dasun Shanaka was considered.I had a feeling this was going to happen but we need our most experienced players if we have any chance in winning.

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

I dont see Kapugedera being in the normal XI, he doesn't deserve to bat at 5 or 6, he needs to be a top order player. If Mendis fails Kapu will definitely take his spot.

I doubted 3 selections

Dhanuska Gunathilaka over Niroshan Dickwella
Dhananjaya De Silva over Dinesh Chandimal
Diruwan Perera over Lakshan Sadakan

No proper off spinner in the squad.

If Dhanuska and Dhananjaya included they can bowl some good part time off spinners so we can have more batting dept in the team.
