1) Avishka Fernando
Scored 203 runs in 4 games which includes a hundered at the grandest stage. Known for his aggressive hitting at the top, Avishka is definitely someone to look out for.
2) Wanindu Hasaranga
Known for his batting towards the end of an innings and for his handy leg spin bowling. Came onto the scene when he took a hat-trick on debut in 2017. Hasaranga along with Akila Dananjaya can be a lethal duo on Indian pitches.
3) Asitha Fernando
Did well in the recent Emerging team tour of South Africa as well as the Super-Provincial tournament held before the WC. Could be a handy replacement for the ‘legendary’ Lasith Malinga.
4) Lahiru Kumara
Always knew him for his efforts with the red ball. He’s got the extra pace and bounce, bowls in the low 150s which can be very intimidating. Every team has a bowler who bowls at 140 whether it is Bumrah, Rabada or Archer. For Sri Lanka it is him who can take that role.
5) Pathum Nissanka
Scored tons of runs in the domestic season. Has done well for the ‘A’ team and the Emerging team. Has a first-class average of above 60. May not be known much for white-ball cricket, but he may be ready for the challenge come 2023.
