  • Vimukthi Perera gave a brilliant performance in the final game when he was given the opportunity to play with figures of 4/25 in 9.1 overs with an outstanding economy rate of 2.72 against the West Indies A in the 3rd ODI. 
  • Suranga Lakmal and Lahiru Gamage fitness will be a concern after they play the 3 Test matches in the humidity in India, therefore, should be rested while also developing groups of other fast bowlers so that they can start to rotate them around in all formats to keep all the fast bowlers fresh and fit. Like what all the other national cricket teams are doing.

to add dhanajaya de silva into the ODI squad , as per lobby he has chosen Dananjaya de silva since he had good run at WI tour but , he did not play for the first two test match against india , his average better then Thirimanne, and KUSAL has got more chance then Dhanajaya, i think should give him some chance .
