Name is Warnakulasuriya Patabendige Ushantha Joseph Chaminda Vaas.

He can swing the cup towards us!

I think it should be either Tissara Perera or Nuwan Kulesekara. They both have played well when they were given chances and are in great form.

I'm a big Chaminda Vaas fan and he's been my idol when I was playing cricket, but for a world cup final, his lack of international exposure over the last 2 and a half years is a big concern.

Kapugedara should play otherwise we miss an aggresive batsman like maththews..It would be an big disadvantage for us..Only kapugedara can fill up the hitting potential of maththews...

The best option is Chaminda Vass. He is a left arm medium fast bowler who can swing the bowl into the both sides. He is a proper bowler who can take good advantage using the new bowl. Likewise he can use the reverse swing when the bowl getting older. Likewise the most of the Indian batsman(destructive) are right hander such Sachin, Shewag, Dhoni. Therefore Vass can make a big unconfortable on the Indian batsman. Likewise at the end of the inning he can join with the Malinga and use the reverse swing and prevent the acceleration of scoring runs.

When we look at the history Shewag and Sachin have not played well against Vass compare to other SL bowlers. Nuwan Kulasekara is very very poor option. Indians are easily scoring runs against him.Even in the Zimbabwe match(in group matches) he was struggle a lot in front of Brendan Tailor. All the teams are trying to attack him while making a defence approach against Murali and Malinga. Because they know that it is difficult for playing big shots against Malinga and Murali. Based on this point Kulasekara can take wickets. But this is a world cup final and you can not leak even a single run.

Likewise Tisara perera is also not an ideal option. It was clearly showed that he was struggling too much with performances in the group matches. Most of the batsman came into runs against him. Specially Indians are playing against him comfortably.

The strength of the India is the Batting. SL must think about that. Otherwise Sachin and Shewag will destroy the Sri lankans....

If SL selectors are selecting Kulasekara or Tisara Perera for for replacing Anjelow ... I think Indians are to be won the match even before start of the play.
