My pick in batting order :

Paranavithana
Thirimanne
Sanga
Mahela
Dilshan
Mathews
Jayawardena
Herath
Eranga
Welagedera
Ajantha Mendis

The batting order change WILL NOT HAPPEN because the skipper will insist on opening and no one cares about the greater good of our cricket !

I would have played Chandimal as the keeper if they hadn't dropped him from the squad. Not too worried about Prasanna Jayawardena though he batted very well in England. However coming back from a pair against the Aussies will be difficult.

Thilan's leg seems to be hampering his movements and he WOULD have made a difference in the 1st test but he let us down.

Seekuge Prasanna loses out because Mendis can bowl everything and effectively cancels out a right arm spinner. Besides Dilshan can also do that.

My XI

Dilshan should continue as opener with Thirimanne and Mendis should come in for Randiv.The rest should be the same.Both fast bowlers were ok in the first test.

Well Prassana in for Herath

Well Prassana in for Herath who is injured seems to be the only change.

Mathews gone. Can't blame him

Mathews gone. Can't blame him for attacking because he was batting with the tail. But looks like we'll be all out for less than 200 again??
