Five bowlers and six batters, hints Chandimal

It's not a bad tactic given Sri Lanka's struggles with the ball, spate of injuries to bowlers and 20 wickets are needed to win a Test, although not my favoured choice.

My preference is 6 frontline batsmen, best gloveman available and 4 frontline bowlers. If one of your batsman happens to be the best gloveman and/or an all-rounder that's are bonuses.

The best way to get the 5 bowlers in would maybe be for Chandimal to take the gloves. Bit tough when he is captaining too. But not impossible. They have said Angelo will bat at 4 so Dinesh could bat at 5 or 6.

Too often the selectors pick too many keepers in a side or allrounders who are bits and pieces players in the longer format.
