I don't like to see Lakmal

I don't like to see Lakmal again because he is not an attacking bowler or a wicket taking option who has been playing in the team for quite a few years. We all know how well Vishwa and Asitha Fernando demolished the Pakistani A attack by defending such a small total. Pradeep is doing rather okay than Lakmal and Prasad is the leader of the pack if he is fit. Therefore one of Asitha and Vishwa can be taken into consideration.

I have given my opinion in a blog post few days ago(http://www.islandcricket.lk/blogs/srilan...) and I would like to add Asitha Fernando if Prasad is unfit.

My 15

1.Dimuth
2.Kaushal
3.Kusal M
4.Chandimal
5.Mathews
6.Shanaka/Siriwardana
7.Kusal P
8.Herath
9.Prasad
10.Sandakan
11.Pradeep

12.Shanaka/Siriwardana
13.Vishwa
14.Dilruwan
15.Roshen

Why I would have both Shanaka and Siri in the squad is that we have had conditions that seem to suit seam bowlers better in a decent number of both first class and especially Test matches. Also both were somewhat unfairly dropped in the test matches in England.

Big fan of Vandersay but Sandakan has a slightly more impressive first class record and would turn it away from the lefties while Herath can turn it away from the righties. So in test matches at least would pick Sandakan ahead of Vandersay. Also Vandersay has just gotten back from injury.

Milinda does not bowl much, Mathews has no faith on him. Use De Silva instead.
