Is this omitted Sri Lanka squad better than the squad picked for ODI series against England?

Does this Sri Lanka omitted squad is better than the squad which plays against England in the one day series?

Or does that means Sri Lanka has lot of average players rather then having at least few world class performers?

Or too many changes in the team in the recent past in terms of first XI selection and in the batting order made not enough time for the players to establish themselves?

Dilshan Munaweera
Dimuth Karunaratne
Kusal Mendis

    These are all proven match winners who should be in the minds of the selectors .but unfortunately some of them arent .This is no time to experiment with any players except a good mystery spinner if there is one . but doubt that would be useful cuz theyll be playing the WC in England .

  2. Jeevan and Thirimanne are
    Jeevan and Thirimanne are good fits to the national circuit too.Given jeevans recent form . but selectors would have to chop and change again . so maybe after the next world cup bring in thiri jeevan munaweera piyanjan sadeera kumara rajitha into the national squad .But hey, Im no selector 🙂

  3. Short-leg
    Dimuth K is

    Short-leg

    Dimuth K is certainly a wrong format misfit and shouldn’t be in the side on test stats! Already we have 2 such guys, hopeless in ODis (mendis & chandimal). That is more than enough burden and dead weight for the rest of the odi batters to bare. Do we have to repeat the same mistake and sink the ship as in 2015 WC?
