Bowling attack

As much as i would like a stronger spin attavm, i feel that the fast bowling department should come first. Assuming everyone is fit i think Herath, siriwardana and dilshan provide a reasomably well spin attack. Our two other options are senenayake and vandersay. Senenayake takes one or two wickets a game but they are majnly coming from catches as he has lost his turn with his remodelled action. If u look at ashwin, he actually troubles the batsmen whereas senenayake doesnt anymore. I think vandersay looks promising but from his last t20 games hes looked inconsitent with his lines and lengths despite generating a good amount of turn. If vandersay were to be in the squad im sure they would have tried him in the india t20 series, but they didnt so he may not be in the xi but maybe as a reserve.
As far as im concerned, all players should be fit such as eranga and prasad. Malinga and mathews should be ok by the asia cup. I think the 8th spot can definitely have Eranga or Prasad in it. I just chose Prasad because he tends to get wickets early in his test career and i could really see him doing the same for t20 with the new ball alongside malinga.
