It will be a tough task for

It will be a tough task for selectors to pick the squad since all the top order is equally performing and some players who missed last series due to various reasons are available now (Asela, Chandimal and Danushka )
I think they are going to have a provincial T20 tournament before the selections and performance in that also might be considered. Below is the playing 11 in my opinion.
1. Danushka
2. Dikwella
3. Chandimal
4. Kusal Perera
5. Matthews
6. Shanaka
7. Thisara
8. Akila
9. Vandersay
10. Kasun Rajitha
11. Lakmal

Once in blue moon only, test

Once in blue moon only, test batsmen Chandi/Angi score strike rate ~100% (at home). Is that good enough for cementing them in ODI IX ? (LOL). These two are of course champions of making misleading personal average but with sinking run rate in short-format at the expense of steering SL ODI nosedive on the road. As expected ODI series lost within first three games by bringing Angi as captain. Defeat by Afg is on the way which Angi is desperate to earn it. SL is in double trouble as Chandi locked into ODI (LOL). My Asia IX: Openers UT/Dikka (never mess up until WC over), #3 Danus (capt), #4 Dana de, #5 Asela, #6 KJP, #7 Dasun, #8 TP, #9 Akila, #10 Malinga, #11 Lakmal. Reserves: Lahiru Kumara, Rajitha, KM, Ashan, Asalanka
