Danushka Gunethileke is probably injured as well and there's no other batsmen in this 15 men squad...

Bring Avishka Fernando to the last game as well as ODI, he smashed 96 in 60 balls against SA 19 couple of days back.

From the squad, it's gonna have to be Pathirana. Otherwise, KJP or Shanaka would be good injury replacements. KJP is probably our best T20 player while Shanaka is a like for like replacement.

Kusal Perera should be the ideal selection.

Kusal Perera should be the ideal selection right at the moment.

I think kusal perera should replace Mathews. He should open with Dickwella. If Gunathilaka is fit then he should come in instead.

Kusal Perera
Niroshan Dickwella
Dhananjaya de Silva
Asela Gunaratne
Kusal Mendis
Dinesh Chandimal
Sachith Pathirana
Seekuge Prassana
Nuwan Kulasekera
Lakshan Sandakan
Isuru Udana

I think its best for Gunaratne to be promoted up like mathews was because we need someone who doesnt throw their wicket away. I dont like Chandimal playing t20 but there are no replacement and its unlikely they will drop the vice captain. SL may probably lose the third match since they even struggled to chase 114 (exciting match though) and de Villiers will be coming back apparently. Nevertheless all the best to the Lankans.

Gunathilaka and Pradeep both returned to Sri Lanka. Kasal needs better shot selection if he to play. I would select Kapugedara but due to his home situation he is not an option yet. Tharanga is for the ODIs.
