I assumed following batsmen would be automatic choices considering recent form or seniority.
01) Upul Tharanga
02) Danushka Gunathilaka
03) Niroshan Dickwella
04) Angelo Mathews
05) Asela Gunaratne

Most probably following players can be automatic choices too.
08) Thisara Perera (C)
09) Akila Dananjaya
10) Suranga Lakmal
11) Nuwan Pradeep or Dushmantha Chameera

I dont think any of those players will find a spot in the XI. But out of all of them I think Kusal perera will most likely have the best chance. He played well at number 4 in the champions trophy against India.

Upul Tharanga
Niroshan Dickwella
Dhanushka Gunathilaka
Kusal Perera
Angelo Mathews
Asela Gunaratne
Thisara Perera
Sachith Pathirana
Akila Dananjaya
Nuwan Pradeep
Suranga Lakmal
