If fit, Chammera, Kumara, Herath and Pushpe. Happy to look past Lakmal and Dilruwan given where we are now.

Pradeep and Kumara as the pacers. Pradeep is the senior bowler, has improved immensely and his pace is higher than Lakmal. Kumara has the pace and looked like a threat when he bowls, he just needs to improve his control and bowl consistently in the right areas. Chameera would be the backup.

Herath and Sandakan/Vandersay/Pushpakumara.

I'm hesitant to have two left arm finger spinners, and would prefer to have one wrist spinner in the XI, since they will get more rip off the surface. Pushpakumara has a fantastic record, but Sandakan or Vandersay would give the spin attack more bite if the pitch isn't doing enough.

pradeep, herath, sandakan, chameera (or kumara.. We need a genuine wrist spinner.. With all due respect to herath, even he can't do too much if the ball stops spinning..But a wrist spinner would turn the ball more(look how much turn cremer got while Dilruwan embarrassingly couldn't turn it a little)... IF we wanted a offspinner, akila Dananjaya looks better at the moment...

Sandakan and Rangana should definitely play along with one other spinner..we should go with our strength and should prepare spin square wickets ..i know our batting is poor against the spin but it is poor against seam,pace and bounce too..even if we get out cheaply at least Rangana will fight alone with other spinners like he did in last match against india in 2015.
