Danushka Gunathilaka will resume Opening the batting and Dilshan Munaweera will resume at no.3 which is his  Normal Position where he normally bats and has scored most of his runs and hopefully Sri lanka Cricket won`t Toy with His postion and destory his confience.

Included All the Specialist Batsman in the Squad to Strengthen the Batting instead of All-Rounders in the XI.Minod Bhanuka is the designated Wicker Keeper in the squad and he is Top Order Batsman so he should be Opening the batting.Also In comparing Wicket Keeping Minod Bhanuka is rated Very Highly than Sadeera Samarawickrama.

Mistakes Made By the Team Mangement-

  • Not Selecting All the Specialist Batsman in the Squad to play in the XI and going in with Too Much ALL-ROUNDERS.
  • Changing Dilshan Munaweera position.
