  1. The team looks good but we
    The team looks good but we may have to take into account the weather that’s prevailing during winter months in England. Most likely we may have seaming conditions in England. I feel it’s better to consider Prasad and Malinga for the world cup provided they are fit and able to bowl 10 over spells

    Happy with the squad but i am not sure what is happening with Asela. What I like about this squad is it has a batting line up to chase 300+ and a few wicket taking options (Lahiru needs to adjust his lengths). Also has a couple of big hitters in the middle order so this ticks all the boxes for me. We may not win the WC with this squad but it’s certainly the best option in my mind.
