My future Srilanka Odi team;

1.Kusal Janith Perera
2.Upul Tharanga
3.Dimuth Karunarathna
4.Anjelo Mathews
5.Lahiru Thirimanne
6.Dinesh Chandimal
7.Kithruwan Vithanage
8.Tharindu Koushal
9.Dushmantha Chameera
10.Lasith Malinga
11.Suranga Lakmal

But here Mathews has to bowl 10 overs. May be Dimuth,Thiri or Kitha can bowl couple of overs. Problem is we don't have a genuine allrounder like Watson or Faulkner. There are so many bits & piece cricketers. May be we can replace Dimuth or Tharanga by best allrounder among Thisara, Jeevan, Seekuge, Maharoof, Shehan, Munaweera, Kapugedera, Bhanuka, Dhanajaya, Nisala, Asela, Mlilinda, Chathuranga... etc. I don't want to remove Kitha he is a genuine one day cricketer.

One thing's for sure: neither Thiri nor Chandi should bat below No. 5.

As Thiri hasn't fixed his new ball issue, might be better to bat him at 4 and Chandi at 3, that's if Thiri can't handle No. 3. If he can, Thiri at 3 and Chandi at 4.

3 or 4 for me and I would have gone with Thiri at 3 but given his slip catching drills inthe WC I would go with Chandi at 3 at this stage. Yes I know, not quiet the steady #3 but I am hopeing Chandi still has something special to offer. He shown glimpses of this in the past and hopeing for more.
