The Team of the future

The Aussie Tour had been very helpfull for the youngsters. The T20 is where we should go all out with them. Maybe keep only Mahela as the senior player. My Sri lanka 11:

Dilshan Munaweera
Mahela Jayawerdena
Lahiru Thirimanne
Dinesh Chandimal
Kusal Perera
Angelo Mathews
Jeevan Mendis
Thisara Perera
Lasith Malinga
Shaminda Eranga
Akila Dananjaya

Since we've got 3 bowlers to do their full quota and give us 12 overs, we rotate the rest 8 between Mathew, Perera and Jeevan Mendia.

I prefer two spinners

Sri Lanka should go with two spinners specially in Sydney. Thisara also reliable player at 7 in t20 level. And also it will be good have a look at Dhananjaya in the Oz soil

01. M Jayawardena
02. T Dilshan
03. K Perera
04. D Chandimal
05. A Mathews
06. J Mendis/L Thirimanna
07. T Perera
08. N Kulasekara
09. L Malinga
10. A Mendis
11. A Dhananjaya

Thisara is a batting all rounder in t20s @DanielAlexender

i believe Thisara is more likely a batting all rounder in t20 format. we cant expect full quota of 4 overs from him though he is a wicket taker. mind you he has only bowled 2/3 overs in t20 world cup. He will move one place up the order and will play as a batsman. so we have to add another spinner or a seamer by removing a top order batsmen. i think JEEVAN or THIRIMANNA will loose his place in the playing XI. That's the combination we prefer in the t20 world cup as well.

Thirrimanne?

Is his style really that of a t20 player? I am not so sure, he seems more cut out as test and ODI player; it would be nice to have 2 spinners though.
