Kula should be in

SL pace bowlers showed some good signs in the UAE and really looking forward to how these guy perform in the early English summer when the ball will swing and move alot. Not sure of the squad but I reckon Kula should be considered and given the new ball. The guy is now able to move the ball both ways with some control and could cause some chaos with the new ball.

Lahiru to open?

I would consider opening with Lahiru in Dimuths place and playing Chandi in the 11. Yes I know Chandi has his struggles but he has some test runs and needs to be given a chance on wickets outside Asia where he has done well in the past.

I would also only take one spinner to Eng in early summer - there is simply no role for a second spinner in Eng at this time of the year.

With England tour less than two weeks away, we dont have a coach and we dont have contracted players too. #MightyCricketBoard
