Agree with Isuru J.
Sanath is "THE MAN."
Here is Sanath's stats.

In Tests, ODIs and T20s, he has scored 21032 runs, taken close to 200 catches and CAPTURED 440 WICKETS.
I feel that the 440 wickets puts him above the other "Greats."
My XI for 3rd Test would be,
4.Dinesh Chandimal (Wk)
5.Angelo Mathews (c)
6.Jehan Mubarak / Upul Tharanga
I think Pallekale ground may offer extra help for the fast bowlers therefor we should go with 3 seamers and one spinner. by looking at the last two games i felt that Herath was not in his 100%.Therefor i think it is best to give him a little break.

Should be interesting and will certainly improve attendance and television ratings. There could be some tactical issues such as the role of dew and swing after the sun goes down. I think Aus is a good place to test as both dew and swing are less of an issue. What this could also introduce is less lost time due to rain as play could be extended (in daylight tests) to night cricket so well worth a probe.
Give Kusal Perera a chance. He is a good wicket-keeper. When KS retires, Kusal can open and Karunaratna can bat at no. 3.
Good I reckon. His record as its stands now is good but I think he has the potential to grow in to the role both as a batter and wickey. I think we need to give him an extended run in the team. He has been around for a while as batter and can play all three formats and is a wickey so at this juncture I reckon he is the best option,.
Niroshan Dickwella should play as wicket keeperbatsmen
He is just a drama Queen. Sanath is greatest ever to play the game.
He was Sri Lankas most EFFECTIVE batsman but I beg to differ that he was the best ever.
I would pay much more to see some others that I have named elsewhere.
Hit the nail on the head ! I couldn't put a reason on why I never really loved watching Sanga bat not in the way I used to enjoy, Roy Dias , Anura Tennekoon or even Duleep Mendis, now I know why.
With Sanga you didn't mind missing the actual knock but you loved the result !
Don't know about Lennon but maybe Arjuna was Ringo ??!!
