SLC odi combinations

Appointing Upul as captain , Jayasuriya selection commitee has done blunder while they are about leave.Due to him all the batting positions are disturbed.

I hope Upul gets banned for 6 months in India series due to slow over rate.

My best playing 11 combination for Odi’s is

Sadeera Samarawickrama
Lahiru Thirimanne
Kusal Mendis
Kusal perera
Anjelo mathews
Asela Gunaratna
Dasun shanaka
Akila dananjaya
Jefferey vandersay
Suranga lakmal
Nuwan pradeep

Bench – Ashan priyanjan, Thisera perera,Lahiru Kumara,
Binura fernando

*In recent times srilanka always playing with many left handers in top order which is dangerous. They all doesn’t have neither sound technique like sanga nor hitting skills like sanath.This should be avoided.

*Basically i don’t have any hopes of match winning performances from lakmal, pradeep in Odi’s , Slc need to be very sharp to find good fast bowlers with 140+,hit the deck hard, swing both ways and send them to Brisbane for intense coaching.

*Dickwella should be continued in T20 if selectors are interested, personally i feel he will not contribute to team win as he doesn’t have wide range of shots. He swing hard at long on and deep mid wicket. But he doesn’t has elegant drives of left hander. Always xposes stumps and doesn’t play big innings.

*Asela gunaratna should be given Odi captaincy with kusal mendis as his deputy.Asela has wide range of shots all over the ground and he can successfully break the shackles in pressure situations too.

*With Mathews injuring all the time SLC should groom one youngster for his place as mathews seems to call it a day after WC 2019.

*The most important thing SLC should do is to appoint some Australian as Head coach like JASON GILLEPSE, Bret lee as bowling consultant to guide viswa fernando, lahiru kumara, chameera etc
