This is the best squad we can persist for the world cup. I like youngsters playing but not before a world cup around the corner. Our youngsters are also clueless. Better to go with experience ones for world cup.

It is very unlikely however if Kusal Janith Perera able to return to the side before world cup one among Dhanuska, Shehan, Chandimal or Thirimanna can make way for Kusal Janith Perera in the above squad

Would like to see Munaweera in the squad; Thirrimanne would have to really perform this series to be in contention for the world cup.

Dilshan and Chamara Kapugedara's time is gone now. these two must be replaced by young talanted cricketers who are knocking on the door. these two failed to play the competitive cricket in Newzeland. they just tried to survive only. so it is left to decision makers to rectify the mistake of selecting these two to the T20 world cup by replacing Dilshan and Chamara with Talanted rookies.

Any one who has a little sense will never include Thrimanna in T20 squad.
My suggestion is Danushka,Dilshan,Jayasuriya,Chandimal,Mathews,Siriwardana,Munaweera,Vithanage, Dananjaya Silva, Malinga, Prasad, Kulasekara, Dasun shanaka, Jeffry,Lakshan Sandakan.

Dilshan, Lahiru, Thisara, Shehan and sachithra should be dropped due to following reasons.
Dilshan- seems to have lost quick reflections with age and always looks for ugly scoops due to his inability of hitting down the ground.
lahiru- His batting style is not suited for T20s
Thisara- failing continuously with batting as well. bowling is pathetic and will be hammered in indian pitches
Shehan- Neither a proper batsman nor a bowler. not up to the international level
Sachithra- Can't spin the ball after re-modledin the action and is very predictable

The above players can be replaced with Kusal( if available)or dananjaya silva,Dasun Shanaka, Maharoof and Randiv.

lol it seems that dinith is day dreaming about thiri , he thinks that thiri played in our following T20 season to drop .. don't be worried bro rizwanodayar's too much sense selectors saw his last inning and decided his batting style is not suited for T20s & he is scoring too much runs for SL to win games so they have decided to dropped him long time ago lol
