Sri Lankan selectors appear to be thinking ahead after the 3-1 defeat in India.
Lahiru Thirimanne, Thissara Perera/, Mahela Udawatte, Suraj Randiv & Dinesh Chandimal are in to the SL team, with or without much notice.
Purely it is a positive move from the SL selectors. Sangakkara has much more relief for team selections since he does not have burden of offering places to aging seniors.
SL’s only worry will be their fast bowling department. Hence, Kula & Thushara are not contributing as they used to. However, Welagedara is improving in every game and Malinga will also soon be available.
Fielding will be the key factor for next world cup, hopefully we should be fine with young blood in the team
