If we can change the side, I like to see MAHAROOF, MUNAWEERA, PRASANNA, LOKUHETTIGE, VITHANAGE in the side for IDIOT players like SEHAN, DICKWELLA, THISARA, SACHITHRA.
SEHAN, DICKWELLA, THISARA, SACHITHRA.These guys don't have a brain.Then why selectors give more chances to these players rather than "MAHAROOF, MUNAWEERA, PRASANNA, LOKUHETTIGE, VITHANAGE"
MAHAROOF, MUNAWEERA, PRASANNA, LOKUHETTIGE, VITHANAGE. These players are good power hitters. And all-round players.
I have no idea why Kapugedera batting low down the order. Final match against Pakistan, Shehan is came for 1 down position.That is poor decision making.Kapugedera is the one who score more runs better than any batsman. Therefore definitely he is the good option for 1 down position. That is the error we could't get higher runs what we expected.But in that occasion dasun
shanaka is also good option for me.
Shehan is not a power hitter, remove him.Same as dickwella, sachithra,thisara.
Thisara shown that he doesn't have a brain,who has more experience playing all round the world.
I like to this squad for WCT20 2016
1. Dilshan
2. Munaweera
3. Vithanage
4. Kapugedera
5. Mathews
6. Siriwardena
7. Maharoof
8. Prasanna
9. shanaka
10. Herath
11. Malinga
12. lokuhettige
13. Vandesay
14. Chandimal
15. Chameera
This is a better team if we need to win the WCT20 2016.

Hamada : I dnt knw y u abusing those guys. What did u see in Kithuruwan & Munaweera? What did they do for SL? U have Shanaka who scored 75 in 9 matches and u calling Shehan and idiot who has scored 175 runs in 10 matches. Dickwella played only 2 matches he failed. Give him the opportunity, Thisara got himself to bat twice. One time he played his role. What did Mathews do to be in this team? What did Milinda did? What did Prasanna did? What did Kapu did to be in this team? Be with Cricketing Brain. Cricket is not a place where u play ur fav players.

@Hamda: What are you ? A five year old ? It's one thing to get frustrated when the team isn't doing well, but the way you are abusing the players is just plain stupid.. these guys are the top performers in our domestic level and their bad performance at international level just portrays how poor our first class level is.. if you feel like abusing someone, go ahead and curse the administrators who have done nothing to increase the level of competitiveness in local leagues.. then again your fetish of Loku hettige in every post ,shows how much you have cared about domestic matches..

I think. it's the bowling options we need to think more, batting was never our strong point after 1996 world cup even after Sanga and Mahela was there, Bowlers used to defend even if we get 140. Unorthodox spin bowlers can make things harder for oppositions when they come to the scene similar to Ajantha Mendis. current bowlers are all known and walk in the park for hitters. e.g Kulasekara they can hit as they wish in death overs if no swing in Indian pitches.
Following bowlers should be there to give the some kind of a boost.

1. Lakshan Sandaken - World has not seen this guy specially since we have England, South Africa, west indies in the WT20 group, he's a chinamon bowler offers some thing different and can be hard to get used initially

2. Aselea Gunarathna - offers some thing different, off cutters ,deceptive run up and can be hard to get used initially, so 2- 3 cheap overs will good for the team and he's an all rounder.

3. Maharoof -

So bowling will be - Malinga, Chameera, Maharoof, Sandaken, Asela Gunaratna - This will give some hope and provide some mystery for teams outside Asia

Vithanage is not good enough to play international cricket, he doesn't have a good enough technique to play high quality bowling. In my view no need to change the current operners, Thirimanne should replace Shehan J (Shehan doesn't have the class to bat at 3 eats so many balls) as the one down batsman. Kapugedera at 4, mathews at 5, Milinda at 6 and Thisara Perera at 7. Kulsekera should be dropped and Sachithre should take his place. Herath, Chameera and Malinga (if fit enough) should play as the bowlers.

Come on guys, be logical. Some of the people you want i have never even heard of. Im sure they are great players but we are wasting our time thinking that these players we come into the squad in a matter of days. If anyone has the most chance getting in, it is lahiru thirimanne. Aravinda de silva said he should be in the squad. I think thirimanne is a definite and he will probably replace shehan jayasuriya. I feel we need a back up for Kulasekera who has been on and off each game, possibly eranga will be chosen. Shanaka might stay in the squad, but if he doesnt i wouldnt mind seeing vithanage take that spot. The number 7 spot can br changed regularly if we need a specialist batsman lkke vithanage or another seam attack like perera.

Dilshan
Chandimal
Thirimanne
Kapugedera
Mathews
Siriwardana
Shanaka/vithanage/perera
Kulasekara
Herath
Chameera
Malinga

Almost everyone apart from shanaka and chameera has good enough experience to play in a world cup.
