What ever the comedy result on July 10th, keep Lakmal (without food in pockets) as captain for 1st test too. If Herath had played 3rd WI test, SL would have earned another loss. But alrounder Dilruwan’s batting saved it by keeping one end secure. Believe that now, absence of faded Mathew halted nosedive. Superb fielding is more important for ~180 over test match unless the veteran guy is Sanga caliber batsman or Malinga caliber bowling legend. If SL’s doctored pitch helps Herath, then absolutely, Akila, Sandakan, Pushphacumara can do the same in addition to their alrounder fielding performance. Remember those stunning catches brought the win. Instead hanging with slow deadwood, let the youngsters (Udawatte, Roshen, Asalanka, Ashen) have a long string of opportunities against top int’l teams. 7 batsmen in my lineup for 1st test out of 14 men squad. Openers DIMUTH / DANA DE SILVA, 3) ROSHEN, 4) KM, 5) DINESH/KUSAL PERERA, 6) DIKKA (VC), 7) DANUSHKA, 8) AKILA/SANDAKAN, 9) RAJITHA, 10) LAHIRU, 11) LAKMAL (CAPT).
