Danushka Gunathilaka & Kusal Mendis
Having Danushka at the top is a no-brainer considering his ability to take on the bowlers in this format. Kusal showed his class during the NZ T20s which shows that he is suited at the top for the shorter format.
Danushka Gunathilaka & Avishka Fernando
Avishka is yet to get off to a flyer in T20s but we should utilise him well for him to get settled in the side. One thing management should do is give him a stable position in the batting order. Shouldn’t be a toss up with no.3 as he is a natural opener.
Kusal Mendis and Shehan Jayasuriya
Shehan is someone who can attack in the powerplay. In ODIs he can bat at 5 or 6, but in T20 he should bat in top 3. Also gives the extra bowling option so we can easily play 6-7 bowlers.
