Please no Malinga. His performance during the last few months has been very ordinary. I think Nuwan Pradeep is a better option

And , using Upul tharanga as middle order batsman also arguable given the modern middle order attacking batting style in the ODIs . I think playing both thirimanne and tharanga in the middle order is not the ideal way.

Angelo Matthews should take more responsibilities in the batting line-up as now he is not bowling that much

Sadeera samarawickrama should be given a chance at one point in this tournament (either as an opener or no.03)
