I like this squad but I do

I like this squad but I do have a few fairly huge issues with it.

First, how the friggin hell did Thisara Perera get selected! He hasn't performed well in international cricket for around 2 years now, was relegated to the "A Team" a month or two ago and was a humiliating failure with both bat and ball in those matches he played. They should have kept Dasun Shanaka, he's at least a better batsman, a handy bowler and is younger while also seeming to have better work ethic than Thisara, but then again every person alive has better work ethic than Thisara.

The other thing that should end is this experiment with Seekuge. He's really only had 2 good games in his career which is nowhere near the consistency you need to play in the national side.

That and I can't help but wonder is Dilshan ever going to retire or is this going to be like Jayasuriya all over again?

Since this squad is only for

Since this squad is only for first two ODI's, I think lack of performances will result long omission for the senior players like TP.
