If somebody thinks that dilshan is back in form with yesterday's performance ,then he has no any sense about the game. We were clearly short of 20 runs mainly due the dot balls played by dilshan between 14-18 overs.
Dilshan was the settled batsman at that time and he should have gone after bowling rather than exposing new batters for big shots.

In my opinion, Dilshan, Shehan, Shanaka and Thisara should be replaced with Dananjaya Silva, Thirimanne, Maharoof and Asela/Rambukwekka.

I think the most desperate change we need to do is to bring Dhanushka in. And replace that useless fellow shehan jayasuriya. Kapu did a quite reasonable job though he could not get many bondaries. We can't do too many drastic changes ahead of a world cup now and let's play this 11. And also if malinga is unfit, it's high time we brought dilhara in. I don't think many teams even remember his slower ball. Chameera and him would be two great wicket taking options. And we desperately need a good spinner in these Indian pitches. Also pls play only 1 player out of shanaka and thisara. My playing 11 would be like this.

Dilshan
Chandimal
Dhanushka
Kapugedara
Mathews
Siriwardana
Shanaka/Thisara
Vandersay
Herath
Chameera
Malinga/ Dilhara

I dnt see anything wrng with Thisara. He is a bowler who can bowl in middle overs and swing the bat hard at the Spinners. When it comes to Indian pitches. He can play a role as batsman. SL can have him at number 8. However Dilshan will never be replaced with someone. If SLC decides to make changes the only possibility is among those 3 players. Dickwella was named as a backup of Chandimal. As Chandi is clicking & middle order fails Sri Lanka needs to play Thirimanne But You can't have Chandi, Dilshan, Thirimanne & Kapu in the same squad. So Shehan needs to make a way to Dhanuska & Dasun have to make his way to Mahroof. So My Squad and XI will be
Dilshan
Chandi
Thiri
Danushka
Kapu
Mathews
Milinda
Mahroof/Vandersay
Chameera
Herath
Malinga

Thisara
Sachi
Kula
Vandersay/Mahroof

In Indian pitches you need atleast 2 spinners who can bowl their full quota. Sri Lanka must play Herath & Vandersay, Milinda & Dilshan can roll their arms if they needed. Chameera & Malinga will look after the opening and Death

We are playing musical chairs in desperation folks - drop him and recall him etc. Not sure what else we can do but its getting frustrating but intersting to discuss. Dont think its going to get us anywhere as the main players are on the park.

Its world cup time, and the best players to play are those who have been in world cups. Lahiru Thirimanne is a must for the squad. We need all the experience we can find, and im not talking about domestic experience.
Dilshan
Chandimal
Thirimanne
Kapugedera
Mathews
Siriwardana
Perera/Shanaka
Kulasekera
Herath
Chameera
Malinga

Thisara perera is much more experienced than shanaka but perera had been disappointing with bat and ball. He rarely gets double digits in batting. He picks up some wickets in bowling but his economy if far too high. Shanaka seems like someone who can hold an innings when there is a batting collapse which will definitely happen to sri lanka. Im still ok with perera playing but i think shanaka is a better option. Kulasekara has experience but he has been on and off each game. One day he gets 2-3 wickets, next game he concedes 40+ runs. Shaminda eranga may be a good alternative. I would personally like to see Dhammika prasad play because he always takes wickets some way or another but it seems unlikely he will be in the squqd. As long as Thirimanne comes in im happy with the squad

I completely agree with Dinith here. It was difficult to say that Dilshan is back in form. Dilshan was desperate to get some runs for himself to avoid the criticism against him. So, I also felt that he was selfish at some occasions in the last match.
