He definitely should've been there in the beginning; we need a better bowling option than Perera and Chaturanga as a spinning all rounder allows us to use another pure pace option.

Exactly, they should play him against NZL if he is in the team

i don't think chathiranga will be that much effective with this dew .

Herath might get the nod ahead of Chaturanga and Prassana though. want Chaturanga to play

Uppercut -- you are right...I thought CD should have been in there from the very beginning....With dew a factor, Prasanna was never going to play as a wrist spinner....

Dan - I have a feeling that Chandi will be replaced by Chaturanga and Herath will take Mendis place...

Another option is to assume Chaturanga can help as a spinner and just replace Mendis with Lakmal..

It is a night match...dew a factor....Don't be surprised if CD plays alongside with Lakmal...leaving both Herath and Mendis out..

@MTC, yup actually Herath went for 23 in his last over in the last time SL played NZ..... with the dew also there...

they might as well go with de Silva and Lakmal..... if they do that.. sensible decision i would say... Lakmal's death bowling has improved very much btw
