Wow, Malinga dropped but we still have Thisara, Kapugedara and Seekuge? Great building for the World Cup...

What happened to Hasaranga? Did well against Zim and now finds himself dropped. And Shanaka? Thisara isn’t the only fast bowling all rounder we have...

And as good as Chandimal has been in the recent test, he’s not really a limited overs batsman. Let him focus on tests.

And Thirimanne, he’s just a failed project but his best format is ODIs. Shouldn’t have been picked for the test team though.

We need to give Shanaka a proper run in the side to at least try sort out his batting. His batting has definitely underwhelmed, but his bowling certainly will be an asset in seaming conditions, especially since Mathews effectively can't bowl now.

WC is in England, and we need a seam bowling all-rounder, because Thisara is of no use an should be let go.
