Sri Lanka vs Pakistan 2nd Test Match (Day-Night, pink ball Test)

My Best XI for the 2nd Test Against Pakistan-
1.  Sadeera Samarawickrama (Right-hand Batsman)(Best replacement for Upl Tharanga)(Debut)
2.  Dimuth Karunaratne (Left-hand Batsman)
3.  Kusal Mendis (Right-hand Batsman)(Permanent no.3 in TEST and ODI) 
4.  Lahiru Thirimanne (Vice-Captain)(Permanent no.4 in TEST and ODI) 
5.  Roshen Silva(Right-hand Batsman)(Debut)
6.  Dinesh Chandimal (Right-hand Batsman)(Captain)(Highest Averaging 50 at no.6)
7.  Niroshan Dickwella(Left-hand Batsman)(Wicket-keeper) 
8.  Rangana Herath (Slow left-arm orthodox)
9.  Suranga Lakmal(Right-Arm Medium-Fast)
10.Nuwan Pradeep (Right-Arm Fast-Medium)
11.Vishwa Fernando (Left-Arm Fast-Medium)

Also, Sadeera and Dimuth did have a good partnership of 300+ againist the England Lions recently.

Kaushal Silva failed as an opening batsman playing poor shots.
Dilruwan Perera failed as wicket taking bowler as he leaked a lot of runs when he was the first spinner to bowl and prove an ineffective bowler and not a wicket taking bowler even with all this experience.

Dimuth Karunaratne can be a 5th bowler as he bowls part-time Right arm medium so they need to strengthen their batting also with the Pink bowl tests its likely to help seam bowlers more than spinners.
