Unless its a 100% flat track we cannot play both Thisara and Dasun in the same XI. I like Sridahara's XI. More important is try to play the same XI ( at least the top 7 batting positions ) for 3-4 games so players know their roles and know how to build partnerships and trust your partner to run between wickets.

Why not use the best team to get the first ODI team. Next ODI’s can be filled with administration's buddies (CHandi & DK etc). My 1st ODI Squad for Eng Series – UT / Dikka (capt, wk), DdS, Ashen, KJP, Dasun, TP, Shehan J, Aslanka, Akila, Slinga.

I like shridhara's squad. Because of the same reason another person mentioned above. Can't play thisara and Dasun both. Don't won't to get delusionized by the length of the sixes these two can hit.
