What is aim of slc in giving odi captaincy to upul tharanga ? If he bats top order one among dickwella, gunathilaka has to sacrifice their place. If he bats middle order he can't score runs. It would be ideal to try the capataincy with wicket-batsman like niroshan dickwella.

For india odi series, slc needs to play Jeffrey vandersay, lakshan sandakan as lead spinners. Pace dept comprises of lasith, chameera, vikum sanjaya/binura fernando. Expecting viswa fernando to perform in odi is useless because he should have some raw pace other wise indian batsman will attack him.

My odi playing 11 for india series

Kusal mendis
Upul tharanga
T. Perera
Dasun shanaka
Lasith malinga
Bench - sadeera samarawickrama, kusal perera, akila dananjaya, binura fernando

Please stop blaming our own people. Ask Sanath ,Sumathipala and Asanka to step down/resign immediately, Minister sports should have the authority to do so.

Keep the young talents as they are now, and stick with the team without changing. coach can decide...

If Sangskara, love his country cricket to blossom let him be the coach and Mahela can be his diputy. 2brains give more strength.

Murali can brought in as our spin specialist coach together with a fielding pro, from overseas if possible. Administration should be silent and help to bring the fitness standards as the Indian captain and coach Ravi describes. Good luck!

If srilankan selection committee have brains tharanga should be left out completely. He along with Thissara should be replaced with Sadeera Samarawickrama and Dasun Shanuka. Of course Vandeesay and Vikum should be better option for T20S
