Vishwa Fernando

Peterson but I like your idea of giving a chance to Vishwa Fernando a go even though he still has not played any matches. He looks like a impressive bowler with significant pace may be handy in down under. In addition he is a left arm pacer too which is different from other SL fast bowlers as part of the variation.

Agree with cover drive

Agree with cover drive my XI also the same for the first ODI but batting order is little bit difference :D.

At least all of them can handle the bat in some way and except Kusal and Mahela, Sanga can keep wickets and others can bowl.

1. Kusal
2. Dilshan
3. Sanga
4. Mahela
5. Anjelo
6. Priyanjan
7. Thisara
8. Kulasekara
9. Sekkuge
10. Randiv
11. Prasad

Only warm up

Lahiru Gamage was impressive. He got two wickets and economical too when comparing with others. Hope he will get the opportunity in the playing XI.
Tharanga has won by a big margin in the Kusal vs Tharanga competition.
Dilshan also can be considered as an opener, since he came in the second over. It seems like he also struggled, just 14 from 24 bowls.
