India A vs Sri Lanka A, 1st Unofficial ODI

Sri Lanka A XI-

1.Pathum Nissanka

2.Danushka Gunathilaka

3.Niroshan Dickwella(w)

4.Kamindu Mendis

5.Ashan Priyanjan(c)

6.Shehan Jayasuriya

7.Dasun Shanaka

8.Chamika Karunaratne

9.Akila Dananjaya

10.Ishan Jayaratne

11.Lahiru Kumara


12.Sadeera Samarawickrama

13.Bhanuka Rajapaksa

14.Lakshan Sandakan

Should these players succeed and get many runs and wickets they are likely to replace the failed players who are currently in the World Cup Squad. Sri Lanka will also be looking for a replacement for Lasith Malinga if he retires from ODI after the world cup to be captain of the T20 squad until the 2020 T20 World Cup.

Players I expect to see in the ODI squad after the World Cup-

  • Pathum Nissanka
  • Ishan Jayaratne
  • Kamindu Mendis
  • Akila Dananjaya
  • Niroshan Dickwella

  1. Have you seen his First-Class Record and ODI Record? He probably has one of the best players records in Sri Lanka.

    First Class format is different to ODI so watch him play the ODI against India A and then tell me if he is worthy or not to be in the team for the future.

    In my opinion, the other players have been tried and tested who have failed to be consistent but Pathum Nissanka has shown promise of been consistent scoring big scores continuous once he gets accustomed to the conditions. Something that is lacking in the current World Cup Squad.
