Good team, Yea Eranga is in good form. but, NZ got so many right-handers at the top and Herath will be handy against them.

The wickets are unusually batting friendly and helpful for decent spinners, therefore Lanka has a good chance to win vs NZealand, Eng and Oz. I wasn't very optimistic before today but the way Tredwell and Root are bowling, Lanka can be optimistic of making the semis coz the three teams in our group are always suspect against spin.

should

should play with two spinners and Kula will definitely get in ahead of Eranga tomorrow but it would be very brave on Mathews if he picks Eranga on form, this tournament is so short and almost every game could be a knockout, your best in-form XI should play every game. And from the pitches so far, they have been typical sub-continent tracks, hope it stays the same tomorrow as well.

Yes, it will be between Eranga and Kulasekara, and Kula will get the nod i guess.

with this new rule for the spinners, i don't think that they will play two spinners again, unless it is a galle 5th day type of a pitch :P
