I have my doubts that he will play both T20 matches. He will not risk another injury just before the "ALL IMPORTANT" IPL.

There are some mutts who are stupid enough to think Mathews cares about IPL more than Sri Lanka. Why is that? Ask them why and they don't have a good answer.

Then there are some other mutts who think Mathews favours Catholic players. Another group of mutts think he favours Colombo players. Then how about the player agent mafia stories? Only in Sri Lanka will you find stupid people who say and believe in things without thinking. All these claims can easily be rubbished with simple facts and common sense.

@Anonymous: Mathews is worst in selecting players for the team, but indeed the best cricketer in the team

Millinda will sit out and i would like to see Dasun Shanaka getting the opportunity to play instead of Thisara Perera.

My XI would be,

1.Upul Tharanga
2.Niroshan Dickwella (Wk)
3.Kusal Mendis
4.Dinesh Chandimal
5.Angelo Mathews (c)
6.Asela Gunaratne
7.Dasun Shanaka
8.Nuwan Kulasekara
9.Dilruwan Perera/Sandakan/Aponso
10.Suranga Lakmal
11.Lahiru Kumara / Vikum Sanjaya / Dushmanth Chameera

Yeah when Mathews returns one of our bowlers should be dropped either Pradeep or Kulasekara, So mathews can bowl the powerplay & death overs

When Mathews returns Tharanga will be dropped and Vandersay will return....

I can see Milinda being dropped as he is seriously out of place, he doesn't seem like a big hitter and indeed struggled a lot in the 2nd ODI against Ban.

Mathews won't give up no.5, that will push Asela to 6, so no.7 should be a big hitter, it should be either Thissara or Prasanna based on the pitch, 8,9,10 and 11 should be genuine bowlers.

And I guess the top order is pretty much settled. Tharanga and K Perera/Danushka/Dickwela to open, probably Chandimal should come at first drop and let Medis bat at 4 (where he is more confortable).

chandimal definitely not a t20 or ODI player ,he can't bowl ,bat and field . Hie makes once a blue moon slow fifty to retain his spot in the team and he is bad example for youngsters to follow. PLS DROP CHANDIMAL AND SLC SHOULD INCLUDE IN FORM SANDUN WEERAKODY.
