My XI-
1.  Sadeera Samarawickrama (Right-hand Batsman)
2.  Dhananjaya de Silva(All-Rounder)(Right-hand Batsman)(Slow Right-arm Off-Spin)(Vice-Captain) 
3.  Kusal Mendis (Right-hand Batsman)
4.  Dinesh Chandimal (Right-hand Batsman)(Captain)
5.  Roshen Sliva(Right-hand Batsman)
6.  Dasun Shanaka(All-Rounder)(Right-hand Batsman)(Right-Arm Medium)
7.  Niroshan Dickwella(Left-hand Batsman)(Wicket-keeper)
8.   Tharindu Kaushal (Slow Right-arm Off-Spin) 
9.   Lakshan Sandakan( Slow left-arm chinaman)
10. Dhammika Prasad (Right-Arm Fast-Medium)
11.  Nuwan Pradeep (Right-Arm Fast-Medium)
12. Dimuth Karunaratne (Left-hand Batsman)(In Form, therefore, can be rested while others fight for a position in the final XI for the first test)
13. Rangana Herath (Slow left-arm orthodox)(In Form and these two youngsters have to start performing under pressure since Rangana Herath might retire anytime and Dilruwan Perera consistent with bat but fluctuates with his bowling performance , and 35 years old therefore he is a temporary solution therefore after he retires we will have the same issue even worse if Dilruwan Perera, can`t deliver the same results as Rangana Herath once he retires as these youngsters need gain experience which can only by exposing them to high-quality cricket)
14. Lahiru Thirimanne(Left-hand Batsman)
15.  Vishwa Fernando (Left-Arm Fast-Medium)

Mr.X i've noticed you have teams for every match,series for a few months now.I like to congratulate you on your enthusiasm.But bro seriously take a chill pill,go enjoy your life.

The whole mechanism of SL cricket is broken untill the right people come into power and fix it nothings going to change.we might win a game here and there but we won't be consistent.

So might as well find a new hobby.

Sadeera Samarawickrama was apart of the XI which won against Pakistan, therefore, the selectors will not drop him as they have stated many times that they will continue with the selected players even if he fails for at least 6 innings before even consider dropping them. Plus Sadeera Samarawickrama was one of rising talent discovered that tour and he is in the best form of his life right now. It would be stupid not to select him and could ruin his confidence if they drop him. Youngster around the world creating records for there country even consider Babar Azam of Pakistan, Travis Head of Austrailia and many youngsters from other countries.It is a time we show more faith in our youngsters. It`s not Nonsense Mr.cricexep it`s common sense and I fear many Sri Lanka fans and Asanka Gurusinha lack in IQ or common sense.
