Help pick an all-time Sri Lanka XI

Since we are bored from lack of cricket these days, and still hung-over over the latest SL triumph! (yes! still watching the highlights…), why not get a bit busy with picking our ALL TIME XI for SRI LANKA?

So I have narrowed it down to nominees for each spot in the XI, and all you have to do is choose your pick among those nominees for each specific spot and make your own XI. Feel free to pick TEST XI and ODI XI seperately if you like; otherwise pick an ALL-ROUND XI who could represent both formats. The nominees are chosen considering the stats as well as the impact they had on the game.

This would work better if we had a voting system which more options(the current one is pretty limited), but ADMINS OF IC feel free to make this into a allround poll if you can!
For now let me know your ALL TIME XIs in the COMMENTS section!
