What is your XI for the next ODI match?

1/ kusal perera
2/danushka gunathilake 
3/ kusal mendis
4/dinesh chandimal
5/anjelo Mathews
6/upul tharanga
7/dasun shanaka
8/seekkuge prasanna
9/suraj randiv 
10/nuwan pradeep
11/suranga lakmal

we lacked the variety in our bowling attack in the last match . hence it would be ideal to add a off spinner randiv to the side . he can contribute with the bat too . it’s still not clear whether anjelo Mathews will be able to play the match as he’s suffering from hamstring strain . even if he recover to play the next match , he would not be able bowl . hence we should find another extra bowling option as non of 6 batmen can be used as proper part time bowlers .

Maharoof is injured , hence we will lose his ten overs and bating depth.Thus , we should find another bowler to complete the remaining ten over’s along with dasun shanaka. It’s important to note that someone like siriwardana would have been a handy replacement for maharoof . but he was dropped from the squad and thirimanna was retained .danushka gunathilaka would be asked to bowls his off spin as there is not a player with all round ability in the squad to replace maharoof. Selectors will think about using another genuine fast bowler instead seekkuge/randiv as there are only 3 genuine experience bowlers in the above lineup.
