Considering current form Kusal Mendis,Chandimal, Mathews and Dhananjaya De Silva can be automatic choices. Therefore, two batsmen out of above five will be dropped. Who deserves to be dropped the most?

PS: I didn't include Thirimanne in the poll though he may also find a place in the squad

Sanath, please don't include guys like Dilshan, they can bring the wrong attitude to these young players. Even if SL loses the ODI series, if it is a young side the fans will give their support. But players like Dilshan and Malinga will only spoil the youngsters attitude. We saw a lot of heart and fight in the new youngster during the test series which players like Dilshan and Malinga does not bring to the team.

It seems that pressure on selectors keeps on increasing to drop dilshan from the ODIs. Hope sana and co. have got enough guts ...

Yep should be which two to drop. Surely the time has arrived to check out some younger players.

Go with a young team.. I'm not a Tharanga hater but I think Youngsters like dhananjaya,Dasun shanaka or siriwardene would be better choices.. And the opener conundrum is an issue.. You cant really drop dhananjaya because he was very consistent in the past few matches.. Well, if they drop kusal perera, they r asking for trouble!!! I think the issue is Dilshan doesn't WANT to retire... There was no reason for him not playing england tour and there were rumors of a rift with slc.. Better retire with dignity..

no doubt that Tharanga, dilshan, thirimanne are good players. but Dilshan close to his retirement. Tharanga & Thirimanne are not fast runscorers & can't bowl as well. Always Dhananjaya, Siriwardene, Dasun, & Dhanushka are better choices as they are capable of scoring fast & can bowl as well. Even Shehan & Chathuranga are better ones as they can both bat & bowl.
