I dnt know why sri lanakan selecting committee prefer lakmal over young talents like asitha vishwa lahiru, if u want any experience guys to fast bowling I suppose malling kula prasad and chameera also more devastating than him.. pick a genuine spinner, dnt go with a seekugeh as a spinner. We are full of spinning all rounders(dilshan, dhananjaya, dhanushka, millinda or some overs from mendis).

Nuwan has had a good time lately and is now probably first pick but depends on who is fit. I think SLC should bring in a rule that fast bowlers must bowl a compulsory minimum 10 overs per innings including the opening 5 overs.

I was a huge fan of Kula (liked him more than malinga to be honest) but its very sad to see he has lost his ability to swing the ball.. He is lethal when he is in his best and gets early breakthroughs.. But without swing, he's just another medium pacer... So better try some new players.. Vishwa didnt seem to have much accuracy in the 2nd test, but its tough to judge because he bowled veey little.. I would like to see someone like Binura fernando or Kasun Rajitha..

Don't know whether Chameera is fit or not. Anyhow, I don't feel like getting him to this ODI squad because no need to put much burden on him in shorter formats. We need him to face against proteas. My concern is finding 3 fast bowlers (Obviously 2 of them are going to play) who can take early wickets & bowl in depth overs. Asitha Fernando is a definite choice & I would like to see Binura. But Who is the other Except from Lakmal???? May Be Thushara Mirando............

I would bring Binura Fernando. Dasun Shanaka can bowl couple of overs.
