Though it was a fantastic draw at Eden gardens earlier today , slc need to address few issues in order compete with india in nagpur test. It is sure that now thirimanne can't be sacked from playing 11 for second test. But chandimal coming in at no.5 doesn't help teams cause. Because he takes time to settle and by the time he settles, he may run out of partners.So chandimal would be ideal at no. 4 and mathews at no.5 would be good as he scores at brisk rate.

May be if there is a chance to remove thirimannne then slc should go for it.

My playing 11 for nagpur test ,

Roshene silva
Angelo mathews

I'm from india but i heard a lot about roshene silva potential . So if chandimal, roshene silva play long marathon innings then definitely am sure kohli and his pacers doesn't have answers. Then mathews, shanaka, dickwella, dilruwan even herath will boost sl score more forward.

I think two changes needs to be done to your XI if Sri Lanka is hoping to trouble Indians in the next game. Gamage is not going to trouble strong Indian batting line-up with his military mediums. He should be replaced by Dushamantha Chameera who can bowl at around 140ks. Sadeera looks good when he is attacking but he is getting bowled too often for ducks probably due to a error in his batting technique, which has to be corrected before playing further international matches. In my opinion Dhananjaya de Silva should replace him.
