With all due respect to Dushmantha Chamaeera and Viswa fernando they have not bowled well when they were given opportunities. Lahiru Gamage bowled really well during Pakistan series (both test and ODIs) and i think he deserve a chance in the team. he bowls wicket to wicket like Vaas and later on Kule did for us. Niroshan Dickwella should be dropped further down to number six and Asela should come up the order to number 4 as we do not have good batsmen to rotate the strike during middle overs. If Kusal Janith is fit then he too sholud come to the playing eleven possibly at the expense of Dhananjaya de silva.
