Sri Lanka squad- Upul Tharanga (capt), Dinesh Chandimal, Niroshan Dickwella,Lahiru Thirimanne, Kusal Mendis, Milinda Siriwardana, Chamara Kapugedara, Thisara Perera, Seekuge Prasanna, Nuwan Pradeep, Suranga Lakmal, Dushmantha Chameera, Vishwa Fernando, Akila Dananjaya, Jeffrey Vandersay

My Sri Lanka ODI XI against Pakistan in the 2nd ODI-
1. Upul Tharanga(Batsman)(Captain)
2. Niroshan Dickwella(W)(Batsman)
3. Kusal Mendis (Batsman)
4. Lahiru Thirimanne(Batsman)
5. Dinesh Chandimal(Batsman)
6. Milinda Siriwardana(All-Rounder)(Slow left-arm orthodox)
7. Akila Dananjaya (Right-Arm Off/Leg-Spin)(Showed he can be a Bowling All-Rounder in the 1st ODI so since Thisara Perera is Useless with Bat and Bowl also drops Crucial Catches Akila should take Thisara spot)
8. Vishwa Fernando (Left-Arm Fast-Medium)(140Km/h +)/Lahiru Gamage(Right-arm Medium-Fast)(125-135Km/h)
9. Dushmantha Chameera(Right-arm Fast)(145Km/h +)
10.Jeffrey Vandersay(Right-Arm Leg-Spin)
11.Suranga Lakmal(Right-Arm Medium-Fast)(130-138Km/h)

Kusal Should always bat at No.3 or 4 if Sri Lanka tries to play with him in different Position they will kill his confidence as well as Sri Lanka hopes to the Winning ways. I think this is Asanka Gurusinha doing he needs to get his mind straight and not lead Sri Lanka Cricket to its early Grave.

This Changing in order will Destroy World Class Talent inside Kusal Mendis, Dinesh Chandimal who himself even thou experienced is trying to regain confidence and this is not helping.

Lahiru Thirimanne should be a permanent No.3 or No.4 in ODI as he has been Consistent since his Comeback but in Test Cricket he has yet to prove.
 Since his comeback in ODIs-
Innings- 4
Runs- 213
Average- 54.5
N.o of 50s- 3
Highest Score- 80

We all know what happened to srilankan cricket from the time swollen headed Gurusingha joined srilankan cricket as a manager/selector. unfortunately authorities cannot understand the damage this guy is doing to srilankan cricket. after the fan protest against the selectors all the selectors had to resign and that paved the way for the cricket revival but still one joker who was in the earlier selection committee is haunting and looks like trying to disrupt the revival by changing the batting order by acting as an IDIOTIC PANDIT. so in the name of srilankan cricket Pl.Pl.Pl. U leave the srilankan cricket to Flourish like they did after 1996 world cup up to now without Pundits foolish advices. there are so many srilankans are their who knows what is the batting order not this pandit who make foolish changes and disrupt the smmoth flow.
