My team for the second test :

Dinesh Chandmal
Thirimanne,
Sanga
Mahela
Dilshan
Mathews
Prasanna
Kosala Kulasekera
Herath
Welagedera
Nuwan Pradeep

In the long term search for test match openers' I feel Chandimal should be considered. Also if Nuwan Pradeep is as good as they say he is he should get at least 3 matches.

yea give a chance to young

yea give a chance to young chandimal..hes a future prospect for sl cricket than paranavithana..gonna be a good opening combinaton..thiramanna,chandimal..both hav got defencive strokes and attacking shots..this is a good for selectors to put two youngsters in front on a flat wicket...to get confidence for them and to get confidence for the middle order as well...

I think Kosala Kulasekara

I think Kosala Kulasekara should get atleast one chance.. coz he is a fine alrounder in domestic cuircuit.

Paranavitana and Thirimanne

Paranavitana and Thirimanne out within the first half-hour of Day 1. Again, on the back foot early.

MJ should be trying to play

MJ should be trying to play inside the line of the ball. He has been weak all his life against the ball that is on a good length or little short and moving away from him.

Mahela

Well if Mahela doesn't do the 200 thing in the second innings....we are in trouble ! This is a repeat of the last match and it means that our coaches have learn t nothing !

The openers are definitely wrong and we are an all rounder short. The tail is too long .

Very frustrating to watch !

Or remove him from slips. No

Or remove him from slips. No point keeping the guy there just because he used to be a good slip catcher.
