If Chandimal

If Chandimal is fit, he should come in place of Kushal and bat at no4.The batting lineup should stay the same, Tharanga should be persisted with during this series, he is too good a batsman to miss out for long. Could also bring in Akila instead of Mendis.

*Last night on a TV interview, De Mel said if Chandimal is fit, he will walk into the team in place of Tharanga
**Playing Dananjaya wudn't be a bad idea instead of Ajantha, since return of Clarke wud blunt the mystery of Ajantha, where as they haven't played against Dananjaya before

Dananjaya- Over Mendis, as he seems to lack known penetration.
Malinga

If Chandimal is deemed unfit then it seems as if we are a Batman short in the squad. Get Mahela to open and bring Tharanga to No.4 as he clearly seems vulnerable to the new ball.

Hope the team management goes

Hope the team management goes with Herath instead of A Mendis. Chandi should automatically find a place at 4, leaving out Tharanga is wise and Mahela to open as he was very successful in last years CB series. Kushal to play at the GABBA, I like this pint sized big hitter.

A Dananjaya is too raw to

A Dananjaya is too raw to throw into the deep end at the bouncy GABBA, too risky. He only played 1 match and didn't bowl; better be safe with Herath. Dananjaya can play the 4th one dayer at SCG and only T-20 also at the same venue.

no point of dropping mendis ,

no point of dropping mendis , he did nothing wrong to get dropped , they say never changed a winning team ,so i would have sicked with tharanga as well , but chandi was the inform batsman ,so he should play.
