My xi for first

My xi for first ODI,
4.Chandimal (wk)
5.Mathews (C)

I don't know with this squad who is going to play the main Spinner role in the team? Is it Sachithra or Seeku? but looking at them i feel dilshan is a good spinner than them at the moment. I think we lack a quality spinner in this squad. also i don't know why Dhammika is not in the squad.

I think Dilshan should retire

I think Dilshan should retire after this series. Its best for the development of Sri Lankan Cricket. We all know how well he can bat, but there is no major ODI tournament around the corner for him to stick around. We can use this downtime to groom young players. This time around lets not go out and find talents from domestic cricket that only perform well at the top order. We need guys that can bat at the lower middle order positions as well. I am saying this because currently have players like -> thir, dinesh, dimuth, upul, kushal who can only do well if they bat up the order. For these guys we need to train them to attack more. ODI should not be played like test, which we see thiri do. Upul and Dinesh seem to have got back their mojo. but lets see. With the current selection, I would like to see the following

1. Dilshan
2. Kusal (this guy need to control his shots. Hes really good but can't swing the bat every time like baseball)
3. Upul
4. Dinesh
5. Thiri
6. Mathews
7. Priyanjan
8. Senanayake
9. Malinga

If we can win first 3 matches

If we can win first 3 matches we can give more chances to new guys in last 2 matches. Specially Kithruwan Vithanage, Dushmantha Chameera & PHT Koushal instead of Dilshan, Malinga & Sachithra. The 3 guys that I above mentioned have the capability to become match winners in future for Srilanka. But they need more international experience to get confidence in this level. Like to see Kithruwan & Kusal opening combination in future. It will be a very interesting one.
Also PHT Koushal & Sachithra Senanayke or PHT Koushal & Lakshan Sandakan spin bowling combination. Also Lasith Malinga, Dushmantha Chameera & Binura Fernando fast bowling combination. Hope Kithruwan Vithanage, Dhanushka Gunathilaka & Chamara Kapugedera 2 of them will be in the T20 squad. Next year T20 world cup is situated in india not easy to win there only with bits & piece cricketers. Need quality bowlers & quality batsmen.
