What if we had this team to WT20?

  1. Kusal (coming from suspension)
  2. Dilshan (In-form)
  3. Chandimal (Like in the CB series in 2012)
  4. Thirimanna (In-form)
  5. Angelo © (IN-form)
  6. Kapugedara (Like in Pak Series 2015)
  7. Milinda (Like in Pak Series 2015)
  8. Kulasekara (like in CB series in 2012) / Prasad (Like in England)
  9. Herath (Fully fit)
  10. Chameera (Like now) / Sachithra (With previous action) / Ajantha Mendis (In-form)
  11. Malinga (Fully fit and In-from)
  12. Perera (In-form)Surely we would win the WT20

But for now, we have to make our team from what we have.

SO WHAT IF WE DO THIS;

  1. Chandimal (Play aggressive)
  2. Dilshan (Play Aggressive and bowl)
  3. Thirimanna (Anchor the innings)
  4. Kapugedara (Anchor or adopt to the situation)
  5. Angelo © (Finish the innings and Bowl 2 overs at the start)
  6. Milinda (Fast cameos and bowl 2 overs in the mid)
  7. Dasun Shanaka / thisara perera (Be the pinch hitter and don’t bowl)
  8. Prasad (bowl as the first change and Bowl at the end)
  9. Kulasekara (Open the bowling and finish off in the middle)
  10. Herath (Give less runs)
  11. Chameera (Attack from the mid and bowl at the end)

Dickwella (for wicket keeper replacement) Sachithra (Spin Replacement) Malinga(Play if fully fit)  
Hope SLC comes to sense and goes with this team.

LET US KNOW YOUR SQUAD ALSO........

A team Without Malinga is

A team Without Malinga is like you 11 players entering the ground with one leg injured each.

Anjolo should come at No 3 and Kapu to follow.TMD and Chandi to open.T20 is all about top 3 and finisher role not matter very much.In fact any one from top three or four can finish.

Rotation of blowers is very very important.So capacitance is the KEY for team like Sri Lanaka with limited resources..So who is the skipper.
Not Anjolo or Chamdimal.

So who,

May be try with Milinda , Because nothing to lose here.

So the squad has been

So the squad has been finalised and I would have the following XI on the field:

Chandimal (wk)
Dilshan
Thirimanne
Kapugedera
Mathews (c)
Siriwardena
Shanaka
Perera
Kulasekara
Malinga
Herath

If the pitch is looking very spin conducive then Senanayake will replace Shanaka/ Perera depending on batting form.

Depending on the new squad

Depending on the new squad my team is as follows;

01) Chandimal
02) Dilshan
03) Thirimanne
04) Kapugedera
05) Mathews
06) Milinda
07) Thisara
08) Kulasekara
09) Herath
10) Chameera
11) Lakmal

I won't include both Shanaka and Thisara in the same team. Because, bowling department is also very important in T20 cricket. So, 16 overs definitely should be bowled by full time bowlers while 4 overs are bowled by part timers.
