I like siriwardena,dananjaya remove the side and added Prasanna and Avishka to the squad.
We need to ball first then we can chase the target.Prasanna need to bat high upping the order, before chandimal bat.Because we have thisara. Don't
send them at same times.

Both above changes not required..

Prasanna is barely good enough to be a tailender. He can't bat up the order because he has just one shot: the leg side swipe. Dhananjaya has already proven his class as a batsman, and so has Siriwardena. I'd say drop a spinner and play one fast bowler (Pradeep since he is the fastest of the injury-free lot), and hopefully bowl first. I think it was spinning too much for our spinners to take wickets. It was either beating the bat or going for boundaries. If we bat first, the ball won't spin as much and that will help us. Chandimal might not play, so I wouldn't mind seeing Avishka play. Though if Chandimal is injured, Dhananjaya should take his slot and Avishka can be the power hitter at 6/7.

move dhananjaya to opener and dilshan at 7. drop dilruwan and thisara and pick decent pacers. we have to have someone.

Prasanna is a poor performer & only scored good total against Scotland that should not be accounted at all.

Both these changes are unnecessary.. Remove Thisara, make danushka amd dilshan open the batting, kjp@3, and rest of the batting shifting one slot down... Its pretty obvious how the aussies enjoy our medium pacers... Danushka can bowl very well as well...

Replace Sandakan with a fast bowler.

Seriously remove Dhananjaya. The best and most consistent batsman of the test series by a long way and one bad match to calling replace him is unbelivable.

1. D de Silva/ D Gunathilake
2. TM Dilshan
3. K Mendis
4. D Chandimal
5. D de Silva/ A Perera
6. A Mathews
7. M Sriwardene
8. T Perera
9. MDK Perera
10. A Aponso
11. S Lakmal

Note: Seekkuge Prasanna is not good enough to find a place in XI and MDKJ Perera is not consistent. And also TM Dilshan have to announce his retirement soon.
