4. Dhananjaya De Silva (All-Rounder)(Right-Hand Batsman)(Right-Arm Off Spin)
5. Dasun Shanaka (All-Rounder)(Right-Hand Batsman)(Right-Arm Medium-Fast)

15. Nuwan Pradeep (Right-Arm Fast-Medium)

With a Spin Friendly wicket and the Middle Order needing Strengthing Dhananjaya De Silva is a good option to have. Replacing Upl Tharanga since he is the only player that hasn`t made an impact yet in the XI.

Pitch and conditions

The pitches will get slower and more spin-friendly as the tournament goes on. There is a chance of showers in Colombo but the weather is expected to clear by 5pm.
