The have been consistent over the last year or so, especially away from home including in India.
No shame in going down to them. Shame it wasn't a 3 test series

No need for the third spinner. Pakistan is very good against spin. Just need to bring Eranga back into squad.

They should bring Jehan MuBarak and Bhanuka Rajapaksa to open the batting in the Pak series.

It was a super effort by both spinners...the others perhaps a little underbowled.
Mendis wasn't quite what they expected.
Lucky it was just a two test series, although with little break between this and Pakistan series, for our players its like a 4 Test series.
These 2 and Lakmal need a good break with their feet up before Pakistan Test

Sorry I have commented on whole team and not just opening batsmen...
I think Tharanga has just back so stiff to discard him again after 2 tests...Kaushal SIlva needs to convert something to a big score or may find himself out like Dimuth

I think it will be much the same combination but its a fresh series and so selectors will need to take into account the different opposition and any injuries/niggles.
The 3 main bowlers Herath, Perera and Lakmal have had massive workloads in the 2 tests and with not a huge lot of rest between now and 1st Pakistan test they need to bear this in mind, especially in case we have to field first.

For me PJ would come back when he is fit, but only after he is match fit. Not like England did with Prior. So he needs to play some domestic cricket first. Given there is no time between series to really do this I would be unlikely to pick him in 1st Test, so no change to keeper, unless you are going to ask one of the top 3 batsmen to keep...which is probably unlikely.

Malinga Bandara..

The guy performs extremely better here in England at the moment. I don't know why Sri Lanka not giving him the chance. Superb Cricketer

I voted for Tharindu Kaushal, because he's an exciting new talent, and also has my name :p. But seriously though, Malinda Pushpakumara shouldn't be a bad choice either considering his form and performances and also since he's a left arm spinner, I mean we know what Herath did to the Pakistanis that day 5, when they had 150 runs to score with 9 wickets in hand.

Was there a man of series from both sides like in England?
I thought Dale Steyn was man of the series and that's what they awarded him at presentations
