Do not drop Mendis

Yes, Suren1998. Definitely Dickwella should open with Tharanga in the next ODI.

But, It's not a good decision to drop Kusal Mendis for Gunathilaka. Mendis is a far more better batsman than Gunathilaka. Actually We need Gunathilaka as a proper batsman not as a part time bowler. If we desperately need a part time bowler, we have Milinda in the team. So, no need of keeping Gunathilaka just because of his part time bowling.

If I'm gonna give him one more chance to Gunathilaka in the second ODI, I would use him as the #6 batsman. No need to change the positions of our current key batsmen (Dickwella-Tharanga-Mendis-Asela-Chandimal). I still believe Asela should bat at #4.
