Dhana must play.

I reckon despite missing the warm up game Dhananjaya must play. He has shown some good form in the previous series and has earned his spot which should only change if he fails over a period of time - not just one test or because he missed a warm up game.

Not sure what the wicket is like but unless it's a green top, we should consider playing Akila alongside Dilruwan and Herath as attacking options as the pace bowling stocks are very low. Without Dimuth, lots of pressure on Chandi and Anji and really looking for Anji to make a statement and dominate a series and stamp his authority on the batting order. We may have a awkward selection with the wicket keeper with possibly three making the starting line. My call is best keeper must keep and lets not fall in the to the trap of using Chandi as the keeper which can affect his batting.

This is a series we cannot afford to lose so looking for the lads to make a good start to the series.
