Only weakness cud b absence of a leftarm fast bowler which gives an extra variation in angle. Other than that, cant complain. All the bases r covered, just need to excute the plans.

Munaweera and Akila are good selections. But herath, he is one of best Test bowler in the world. No doubt about it. But can he change to T20 format

Superb selection. But kapu is a good option than chandimal as he was not in a good form. I think TM Dilshan nd Munaweera should open. Mahela in the middle makes batting line up stonger.
Thisara also consider as a batting all rounder in this format becaouse he will not able to bowl his 4 overs.
My Final XI,
01. D Munaweera
02. T Dilshan
03. M Jayawardene
04. K Sangakkara
05. A Mathews
06. J Mendis
07. T Perera
08. N Kulasekara
09. R Herath
10. L Malinga
11. A Dhananjaya

Not selecting Kapu is a big mistake..His stroke making ability and striking power which is very needy for T20 s cant't be compared with some of the senior players even..He should be given a chance...
