In my opinion worst player selected in the squad of 15 is Niroshan Dickwella. He looks like a very poor batsman. His shot selection is awfully poor during the Indian tour. Thinking how he is got selected for the most important tournament ?

Probbaly because he is the only replacement wicket-keeper batsmen that have shown some potential.

It should have been Danushka Gunathilaka. Sure he is having a rough patch but he has some experience just couple of match a go he was at his best. He didn't get used to the Indian conditions so paid the price. Chandimals' style is not going to work unless he use his brain to play according to the ball rather than blind slogging. Lahiru Milantha is could have been considered becasue he too is a wicket keeper batsmen with high strike rate and had a good couple of weeks.But unfortunately he has no experience to play straight a way in a world cup.

Interested to note the votes for Thiri as the next best. We are going around in circles folks.

@Stormy Thirrimanne was the main at the asia cup last year and he had a decent opener's stint with Dilshan in the world cup :D
I would've seen Munaweera given the chance to step up though, I don't get how they can justify putting in Dickwella for such major tournaments given his recent performances...
