Thanks for pointing that out. So I guess chandimal is the most viable option regarding the wicket keeper batsmen. He will be most suited to bat at Number 3.

Open Slot 1 : Thirimanne backed by Guna
Open Slot 2 : Chandimal (wk) backed by Dickwella (wk)
Open Slot 3 : None of theem, Have to find a good spinner.
Open Slot 4 : Chameera backed by Eranga.
So the 16 men will be
Dilshan
Thirimanna
Chandimal
Kapu
Mathews
Milinda
Dasun
Herath
Chameera
Malinga
Eranga
Thisara
Shehan
Dickwella
Gunathilaka
And the 16th must be a very good spinner who can win matches for us

BATTERS

1.T.M.DILSHAN
2.LAHIRU THIRIMANNE
3.DINESH CHANDIMAL
4.CHAMARA KAPUGEDERA
5.ANJELO MATHEWS
6.MILINDA SIRIWARDENE
7.DASUN SHANAKA
8.NUWAN KULASEKERA
9.RANGANA HERATH
10.LASITH MALINGA
11.DUSHMANTHA CHAMEERA
12.SACHITHRA SENANAYAKE
13.DILHARA FERNANDO
14.KITHRUWAN VITHANAGE/KUSAL PERERA
15.THISARA PERERA/SEEKUGE PRASANNA/JEEVAN MENDIS/FERVEEZ MAHAROOF/ SHEHAN JAYASURIYA/DHANAJAYA DE SILVA

- WE DON'T NEED TO PLAY CHAMEERA & MALINGA EACH & EVERY MATCH TO REDUCE THE PROBABILITY OF INJURIES. THEREFORE WE NEED BACK UP BOWLER DILHARA IS THE IDEAL ONE AS HE HAS EXPERIENCE & GOOD PACE + GOOD SLOW BALL.

-AS KUSAL UNAVAILABLE KITHRUWAN IS THE IDEAL PLAYER TO REPLACE HIM AS HE HAS THAT SAME KIND OF ATTACKING MIND SET LIKE KUSAL.

-BIGGEST PROBLEM IS KULASEKERA'S BACKUP ALL ROUNDER. WHEN WE BAT AGAINST TOP QUALITY BOWLING SIDES WE NEED BATTING DEPTH.THERFORE WE NEED COUPLE OF DECENT ALLROUNDERS. ALTHOUGH WE HAVE DILSHAN,MATHEWS,DASUN,MILINDA WHO CAN BOWL BUT THEY RARELY BOWL THEIR FULL SPELL.

please put Thisara Perera as opening batsman since he can throw his bat with powerful hits in the first 6 overs which will fetch rich dividends as I feel he is useless down the order when the pressure is up. This is the best slot we can use him . WE CAN SEE ANOTHER KALU / SANATH in the opening batsman.

Not to sound like a broken record or anything, but Munaweera should be considered for the opening slot as well.
