* Sri Lanka needs to rotate their fast bowlers to keep them fresh and Injury free. Especially since they are only in the group stage and not in the main tournament yet. All three Fast bowlers have been injured in the last 1 to 2 years. Especially since their only back up bowler is Shiran Fernando who left Sri Lanka 2-3 days ago to UAE someone who does not have enough match practice to play and international Cricket. Nuwan Pradeep is still recovering and needs 3-4 weeks of rest.

  1. It is always better to keep the winning eleven, but at the same time, looking at the bigger picture Charith Asalankas inclusion is very much imminenet considering his potential and part time off spin he can offer. At the same time it is very much evident that DC lacking in confidence and uncertainty of the place in the playing eleven at the back of his mind is doing no good for him.
    It is better to persist with our bowling lineup until we secure the place in the next round without any doubt before thinking about playing the next rount eventhough it is almost certain.
