Do you believe Chief Selector Jayasuriya made the right decision to exclude Kusal Mendis from the T20 series?

Definitely, that's his best selection move in a long time.Also very happy to see Chandimal not selected for the team. Shame that Amila Aponso has still not been selected. Niroshan Dickwella is out, and Kusal Perera is subject to fitness, so if these two arent playing then i think the team should be:

Upul Tharanga
Dhanushka Gunathilaka
Dilshan Munaweera
Asela Gunaratne
Chamara Kapugedera
Shehan Jayasuriya / Milinda Siriwardana
Thisara Perera
Lakshan Sandakan / Seekuge Prassana
Vikum Sanjaya
Nuwan Kulasekera
Lasith Malinga

Although i would like to see Dasun Shanaka play, i just adont see him being chosen in the XI.

If KJP is not playing then we have no wicketkeeper which is why they have Weerakkody on standby. Thats a shame because i dont he's ready for T20 so i hope KJP is fit to play.

We don't need to risk entire batting career of Kusal Mendis to win few useless bilateral T20s. On the other hand that place can be given to a T20 specialist such as Munaweera, KJP or Kapugedera. So a very very good decision by Jayasuriya if he is the one who made this decision.
