without a doubt yes!! Half fit or underperforming, doesn't matter... His reputation is enough to keep batsmen honest... besides, we need variety in our attack... We don't have a left arm seamer and pitches in England don't favour spinners, so variety of pacers needed.. All the ones we have are quite similar(pradeep, lakmal , kulasekara, etc)... I personally think malinga, vikum sanjaya, lakmal/pradeep should be our main bowlers.. Sandakan as spinner

.. Four bowlers attack... Remaining 10 overs can be covered by mathews, asela, dananjaya, Thisara, shanaka,etc whoever is selected.. I think malinga& sanjaya can bowl at the death... I would leave out kulasekara because he is easy prey nowadays to batsmen... No pace or swing.. Vikum sanjaya on the other hand seems very impressive with his swing as well as yorkers ..

I also agree with NMM

Vikum has the potential to be a good death bowler and can swing it as well.Great if Mali can make another Bumrah out of him.
