the only batsman i am confident in is dickwella, mathews, and gunaratne. i feel like mendis and chandi are going to dissapoint again. i would like to see kapu take chandis place as chandi is no longer the wicket keeper

My suggestion is leave out mendis and replace dhanushka gunethilaka for that, since tharanga will rule out for next two games. Dhanushka can get in i guess. We remember that danushka bowled and fielded really well last england tour. Bating perspective, nothing to lose coz mendis already failed to score runs.I think his replacement will be good since he is an allrounder.My SL XI for next game

A bit surprised at the calls for Mendis to be dropped - wasn't he the man of the series in our last series (or am I mistaken). Regardless, I dont see the point in this sort of talent sitting on the bench so play him is my call. I also reckon Danushka should play in place of Chandi. It would be the case in the next game as Tharanga is suspended.

If a decision should be made among the chandi vs mendis I would select mendis in any condition but chandi was the leading scorer in last English tour if I am right. My suggestion is to fight back for chmp trophy but I believe mendis is our asset and he could be back to form soon.

Dhanuska is not in the squad. He is on stand-by, so he cant play.

We cant make wholesale changes to our entire lineup, so leaving out chandi and Mendis will not and should not happen (IMO).

But we need to play 4 geniune bowlers. Lakmal, Pradeep, Mali and Sandakan is my choice. We have to take wickets, thats the only way we can win tmrw.

We have to trust that 7 batsman can do the job. If we play 3 bowlers (as against SA), India will score 375/400.

My team:
1.KJP
2.Dickwella
3.Mendis
4.Chandi
5.Mathews
6.Asela
7.Seeku/Thisara
8.Lakmal
9.Pradeep
10.Malinga
11.Sandakan

Personally i feel we have the wrong set of players for the tournament , but because the batting conditions so good we still have a slim chance . We just need to be a bit more attacking in the overs from 11-40.
