It's truly a shame that they dropped Sandakan from the squad, because clearly bowling is our weaker suite and we're short of a bowler due to Mathews fitness issues.

I think it's likely that Gunathilaka will get the nod ahead of Dhananjaya. Would prefer that the drop Perera and play Malinda instead, between Gunathilaka and Gunaratne we'll at least have two decent off spin options which should balance out having two left armers.

However, as mentioned on cricinfo, there is definitely the possibility that they may decide to go with 5 bowlers. the risk with that strategy is that our batting isn't completely solid with Mathews being out of form and most of the others only cementing their places in the side.
