My Alternative Sri Lanka ODI squad against South Africa

Niroshan Dickwella

Due to the Issues with Malinga captaincy, he may be relieved from his duties. Niroshan Dickwella likely to take the role as he is an aggressive player by nature but has a calm and encouraging outer shell like Mahendra Singh Dhoni, therefore, the team could thrive with his young and enthusiastic character also considering Niroshan Dickwella has captained the Sri Lanka U19 when he was young.

This Captiancy change depends on the teams status and relationship. Also now that the selectors would have had enough time to see all the players in the Domestic system and international system play. There will be a sufficient amount of changes as the Squad sent to New Zealand is not World Cup worth squad. Many players stated below have shown talent that outclasses the previous members in the squad. They deserve an opportunity to showcase their talent before the world-cup selection and the selectors have shown to take a lot of bold decision like with the Test Squad. The result is showing so the same treatment is required for ODI to change the results around.
