Go with full strength squad to beat team INDIA

SLC should use the full strength squad to beat India.Now All the 24 players were joined in bio bubble for india series. They were signed the tour contract not the annual contract. This is the right time to go with the best squad to beat india and gain the confidence in whiteball format with return to the winning ways.

Bhanuka Rajabhaksha is the must player for middle order at.No5 in ODIs and No.3 in T20Is. Dhananjaya Lakshan should bowl in the powerplay in both ODI & T20I. In ODI Dushmantha Chameera might bowl in powerplay with partner Dhananjaya Lakshan.Binura Fernando is not suit for ODI format.He is only suit for T20I format. In T20I Binura and Dhananjaya Lakshan are the powerplay bowlers. Chameera might bowl in middle and death overs. Avishka had less average and strike rate in T20I.So he is not fit in T20I squad. In previous year he played well without footwork against pace bowlers. But now a days he completely failed against pace bowlers with footwork problem coaches should consider this. Chamika Karunaratne was not bowled effectively in england series.
