Since NZ comes without their key player, we could have rested some of our seniors to give the oppurtunity to younger players. Personally I don't think it's good to omit Eranga, because still he is new to the international setup and all the youngsters (Kusal, Lakmal, Dimuth) should be given a fair chance to build their confidence/exposure/experience.

P.S - it's good to see that Jeewan Mendis has been dropped from the squad

Mitchell McClenaghan

Watch out for "Mitchell McClenaghan" because chandi and mahela always struggle with left armers natural angle.
