Jevaan mendis did not work for the last match. Low middle order was the weakness at the moment. If we include Lakmal into this side. It will strengthen the fast bowling department and since he can contribute few runs with the bat as well ,the team will benifit more.
If the openers give us a good start Avishka Fernando and Kusal Mendis have to push their 40’s into big innings. Then the mathews and the tail can increase the rate without gicing away easy wickets.
In the last match our bowling was superb. If we include Lakmal ,remember he bowled well vs South Africa in the test series,so our bowling can attack more.

Watch out for De cock, Duplessis,Amla,Duminy,miler and Rabada. We can easily beat them if we
