Playing XI

1. Dhanushka Gunathilaka
2. Dhananjaya De Silva
3. Kusal Mendis
4. Kusal Perera
5. Anjelo Mathews
6. Asela Gunarathna
7. Dasun Shanaka
​8. Thisara Perera
9. Akila Dhananjaya
10. Suranga Lakmal
11. Lahiru Kumara

This is a perfect squad with a very flexible team with so many good all rounders. There are 3 full bowlers in the playing XI with other 20 overs can be filled by Thisara Perera, Dasun Shanaka, Anjelo Mathews, Asela Gunarathna, Dhananjaya De Silva and Dhanushka Gunathilaka. Even in batting wise no 8 is Thisara Perera shows how flexible this squad is going to be. If SL play this squad will surely have an impact in the WC.

Other squad members

12. Shehan Madhusanka (Can bat also reasonable way)
13. Dushmantha Chameera
14. Seekuge Prassanna (Not a fan but we need a leg spin bowler or left arm orthodox spinner. Since he can bat also he edge past others like Jeffrey Vandersay, Prabhath Jayasuriya and Amila Aponsu) Note: We can try out Kamindu Mendis if we confident on him. Good young player who can turn away from batsman all the time whether it is a right hand or left hand batsman and a very good batsman as well.
15. Dinesh Chandimal / Sadeera Samarawickrama as the additional W/K batsman

I personally prefer K Mendis to open the bat. I’ll like to go with;

1. D Gunathilake
2. K Mendis
3. D de Silva
4. MDKJ Perera(wk)
5. A Mathews(c)
6. A Gunaratne
7. D Shanaka
8. T Perera(vc)
9. A Dananjaya
10. S Lakmal
11. N Pradeep

12. L Kumara
13. K Rajitha
14. D Chameera
15. D Chandimal
16. U Tharanga

As the World Cup is to be held in England, pitch conditions will help to fast bowlers. And we got spin bowling options in D de Silva and D Gunathilake.

This is the best combination to me for wc in english conditions.. If kusal mendis fails someone like munaweera shoud open with gunathilaka. Asela is overrated player. priyanjan is steady in middle overs and his medium pace bowling will very handy in england

Like the make up too but not sure is Asela is ready or fit but the point of this team is, if it fires, we have a chance to compete. However, I feel the selectors will include both Chandi and Tharanga and we will be in the same current hole.

The Thisera and Dasun pair must be stuck with as they have the capability to impact with both bat and ball and the all important big hitting that we so badly need.
