I have noticed you for a while. I'm pretty sure you have no cricket sense or else you are from Sri Lanka current administration???

What kind of joker you are. Mathews is at 8 and he is not in the side for Test or ODI.

I can challenge you he can bring the victories for SL.

Mr.X don't comment anymore.

What a ridiculous team this is. Your top 4 players are all opening batsmen and have Mathews batting at 8!?
At least try to be realistic in your approach rather than showing us your dream XI.
Upul Tharanga is currently the captain, nothing can be changed about that. If there was a captaincy change then it would most likely go to Thisara Perera as many people seemed to have liked his captaincy in the Pakistan series. But neither of the players are in your team.

If Tharanga remains captain:

Upul Tharanga (c)
Niroshan Dickwella (wk)
Dilshan Munaweera
Asela Gunaratne
Angelo Mathews
Kusal Perera
Dasun Shanaka / Thisara Perera
Akila Dhananjaya
Jeffrey Vandersay
Vikum Sanjaya
Lasith Malinga

Nothing is set in stone. Any calls of having tharanga as a captain in a T20 squad is like having show pony amongst the thoroughbred horses. And we know what that means!! With added burden of having a someone who is not renowned for his fielding must weigh in selecting him in fast paced game. Having a side which is based on merit and selecting a side on horses for courses is different to a batting order. Just because someone is listed low in a batting order doesn't mean he is going to bat at that position. It's not important who bats at what position because it is always revolving according to the situation but make up of the team is.

Having an argument about of the makeup of the team is all and good but whether the Maxwell Smarts who are given that privilege to pick them at least have that thinking is what matters. Wishful thinking maybe!!!
