Theres too many players in

Theres too many players in the current squad who will be dropped quickly if they fail to perform. I dont really see Chandimal in the side to be honest given his play style. I think Gunathilaka, Tharanga, Kusal Mendis and Dananjaya de silva make a good top order for our team. We also have kusal perera and Niroshan Dickwella who can take the place of anyone who isnt in good form. Mathews will either be our no. 4 or 5 batsman. When it comes to the allroumders its a difficult choice becuase we have Thisara who is a bit of a hit or miss player, Dasun Shanaka and Asela Gunaratne. My choice would be Shanaka if Gunaratne continues to have injury issues. Our choice of spinners are on the weak side because in the shortest format i think SL has the most inexperienced spin bowlers. Hopefully Akila Danajaya improves his consistency and holds a place in the team. I feel like the second spinner should be a wrist spinner due to the recent success of them in the shorter formats. Our usual go to fast bowlers like Lakmal and Pradeep are quite lackluster in my opinion. I think at least one of them should stay in the side for the sake of experience. Lakmal has better control but Pradeep is a better wicket taker. Hopefully Chameera can improve aswell. It will be interesting to see if SL tries to introduce that youngster who bowls like malinga
