Final-in the Tri-Serie-Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka-Preview

The Likely XI from this Sri Lankan Squad-
1. Upul Tharanga 
2.  Danushka Gunathilika 
3.  Kusal Mendis 
4.  Niroshan Dickwella (Wicket-Keeper)
5.  Dinesh Chandimal (Capt.)
6.  Asela Gunaratne
7.  Thisara Perera
8.  Suranga Lakmal 
9.  Shehan Madushanka (Debut)(Swing and Seam bowler and can bowl 140+ Kmph but Average-138Kmph)(Has many variations the slower ball which is delivered around 120kmph) 
10. Dushmantha Chameera
11. Lakshan Sandakan

12. Akila Dananjaya
13. Nuwan Pradeep (Minor Hamstring injury)
14. Wanindu Hasaranga 
15.  Dhananjaya De Silva

Pitch- Seems to Help the Fast Bowlers more than Spinners in the Tournament so far. With Sri Lanka not Requiring the Services of  Akila Dananjaya in the last match so either they will give that spot to either Nuwan Pradeep if he is fit or gives an opportunity to the Fast-Raw pace bowler Shehan Madushanka. With the Performance of a similar Fast Bowler Dushmantha Chameera who was extremely Economical and was a Wicket Taker, it`s likely to have favored  Shehan Madushanka to be in the XI for the Final. Also with Suranaga Lakmal nursing, a Calf injury does increase his chances of playing.

Since Surnaga Lakmal is the Vice-Captain of the Test Side if he does have a Minor Calf injury he is unlikely to play the Final.
