If Sri Lanka want to defend their World T20 crown in next year in India …..

If Sri Lanka want to defend their World T20 crown in next year in India  they should play the following team.

Playing XI

Kusal Janith Perera
Thilakarathna Dilshan
Kithuruwan Vithanage
Dinesh Chandimal
Anjelo Mathews
Chamara Kapuedara
Milinda Siriwardena
Thisara Perera
Nuwan Kulasekara
Rangana Herath
Lasith Malinga

Others in the squad

Lahiru Thirimanne
Suranga Lakmal / Sachitra Senanayaka
​Dhammika Prasad
Shehan Jayasuriya

This is the best squad for SL.

SL have the power hitters from number 1-8 and all are decent batsman. But do not give the chance to bat Shehan Jayasuriya at number 3 position. He is ok to be at the squad or play at number 7/8. But he is not a great batsman to bat at number 3. He is a kind of hit and miss player and can cost many balls when there are lot of good batsman in the down the order. This scenario is clear visible in the yesterday game. Vithanage should be nurtured to take the number 3 position because he is a X factor player with a decent technique who can win a game on his own like Kusal Perera. 

If SL posses the above squad it will be very hard to other side to beat this strong team. CHEERS !!!
