Sri Lanka announces squad for 1st ODI against India: Upul Tharanga (Captain), Angelo Mathews, Niroshan Dickwella, Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, Chamara Kapugedera, Milinda Siriwardana, Malinda Pushpakumara, Akila Dananjaya, Lakshan Sandakan, Thisara Perera, Wanindu Hasaranga, Lasith Malinga, Dushmantha Chameera, Vishwa Fernando

Most Likely XI Sri Lanka Selectors will choose against India -
1.  Niroshan Dickwella (Left-hand Batsman)(Wicket-keeper)
2.  Danushka Gunathilaka (Left-hand Batsman)
3.  Kusal Mendis (Right-hand Batsman)
4.  Upul Tharanga (Captain)(Left-hand Batsman)
5.  Angelo Mathews (Right-hand Batsman)(Right-Arm Medium)
6.  Wanindu Hasaranga (Right-hand Batsman)(Right-Arm Leg Spin)
7.  Akila Dananjaya (Off-Spinner)
8.  Lakshan Sandakan(Slow left-arm Chinaman)
9.  Dushmantha Chameera (Right-Arm Fast)
10.Vishwa Fernando(Left-Arm Fast-Medium)
11.  Lasith Malinga(Right-Arm Medium)

All-rounders at no.7 and no.8 hardly contribute with neither bat or bowl as in win matches only the top 5 score most runs while the others score single digit scores, therefore, sri lanka should go with an extra bowler since the bowling department is severely worse than the batting as there have been matches where Sri-Lanka couldn`t defend scores of 280+ in the recent times.
