I would replace Kumara with Fernando, but i wouldnt be surprised if they stick to the same bowling attack because Kumara bowled much better in the second innings. I doubt Suranga Lakmal will be effective against India, so that's why I chose Fernando.

Upul Tharanga
Dimuth Karunaratne
Dhanushka Gunathilaka
Kusal Mendis
Angelo Mathews
Dinesh Chandimal
Niroshan Dickwella
Dilruwan Perera
Rangana Herath
Nuwan Pradeep
Vishwa Fernando

Gunathilaka was dissapointing this match but I'm sure SL will stick with him for the remainder of the series.

We should pick new bowlers whom Indian team have not seen much. This has worked for us in the past. Example: Ajantha Mendis. Indian team is well balanced with specialist bowlers who can also bat. Ex: Jadeja, Ashwin, Pandya. We should match these players to challenge them. Currently I can see only Shanaka who can take Pandya's place. Our wicket taking spinners can't bat long innings nor they can take wickets with India.

My XI;
Dimuth / Chandragupta
Chandimal / Roshen Silva
Hearth / Kaushal (if Herath injured)
Akila Dananjaya

6 batsmen
1 fast bowling all rounder
3 spinners
1 fast bowler

We should find the best bowling combinations and make pairs. Identically a left armer with a right arm.

Here, Vaas' feedbacks play an important role in selecting bowling combinations since he is the head bowling coach and who has a vast amount of experience in international arena. He knows each and every bowler in the squad very well.

I think it's very very dumb to play two offspinners(plus two offspinning allrounders) if the pitch is not a raging turner... On a good wicket,get a wristspinner in..If herath is playing, dilruwan shouldn't..Unless they pick him as a batsman, lol!!
