“Angelo Mathews, Asela Gunaratne and Kusal Perera all passed the yoyo and skinfold tests but as Asela and Kusal were short of match fitness we did not select them,” said chairman of selectors Graeme Labrooy.

Asela Gunarathna and Kusal Perera are not considered for the Test Series against India due to Match Fitness.

Mr X agree with my squad if all are fit and ready to go?

I still think best players must be selected regardless of the match fitness. These two are injured only for 5 month period so may not be a major issue.

But Dhammika case was different he was out of action for 2 years and he may not be in match fitness for one or two months

Even though the above line up is someone's personal opinion, I find it really surprising to see Dinesh Chandimal has lost the Captaincy and also not in the playing 11. Dinesh Chandimal did well as a Captain and also as a batsman during the concluded Pakistan Test Series by leading his Team to a 2-0 Victory.
