Kushal IN - Upul OUT

Yep, I go with Daniel's XI,
But will they replace Upul Tharanga for the first match?

And it looks new selection committee is not interested in Akila Dananjaya

Personaly I dont like mystrey spinners, because they have very short career.

Good XI Daniel

but I want to give a chance to Angelo Perera, PAthirana, Eranga chances as well.

From the little i saw of Vithanage, i feel that he needs to really think about his batting before he gets another chance in intl level. i know ppl talk about playing you own game etc but i feel that in SL the gap between first class and intl is too big for someone to make the step up without adjusting your game. unless you are prodigously talented. he didnt seem to value his wicket in the brief chances he had in the test matches. i also feel the same way about Dimuth K.

Akila played for Colts last week, he is fit

Akila played for Colts last week when Kushal slammed his 336, he is fit..maybe the selection committee see him as a T20 option. Senanayake's inclusion is not great due to the fact Tharindu Kaushal is being ignored yet again.

I will say drop drop

I will say drop drop Thirimanne for Kushal Janith Perera. Upul Tharanga will have to prove him self in this tour or else he will be out for good
