MY SQUAD FOR WORLD T20 AND BEYOND

Kusal Perera set to lead Sri Lanka in limited-over series against England

These are the players that i would pick,i know there are a few suprising picks. but from what i saw in the invitation t20 these guys have potential.And we need to move forward not look back at past players.There are also other players that looked good but i capped the selections at 20 players.

Also the big worry from the invitational t20 is the lack of players that can hit sixers and fours .It’s no wonder we are terrible in this format.

Would like to hear everyone elses preferred squads in the comments.

STARTING XI:

1.Kusal Perera (wicket keeper)

2.Avishka Fernando

3.Banuka Rajapakshe

4.Dananjaya de silva (vice captain)

5.Charith Asalanka

6.Dasun Shanaka (captain)

7.Wanidu Hasaranga

8.Chamika Karunarathne

9.Binura Fernando

10.Praveen Jayawickrama

11.Dushmantha Chameera

SQUAD PLAYERS

    • Totally agree .
      Kjp,dds and shanaka are the senior player.Most of the other guys are thinking cricketers
      But who are the senior players that can come into the playing 11 ?
      T20 requires power hitting,quick running between wickets and be more than average in the field.
      Most senior players in other teams meet these standards.
      Ex warner,smith,faf,pollard,morgan,kohli,sharma,williamson,boult etc….

      • both dasun shanka and dds has not played even 50 T20I , hw can u say that they one of the seniors , DASUN SHANKAS STRIKE RATE IS 107 IS THAT A T20I FINISHER REQUIED? HE DOESNT PERFORM IN INTERNATIONAL COMPARED WHAT HE DOES IN DOMESTIC

        • If not dasun shanaka then who should it be ? Yes he needs to improve but i don’t see anyone else performing to his standards in atleast domestic T20.
          DDS has been around for a while. as you say there needs to be some experienced guys.His offspin is going to be important for us at world t20.

  1. Lahiru madhushanka proved that he is a hard hitter who can Hit six and fours (vs Lakmal). He should be in squad as replacement for Chamika. Incase if he get injured or rested
    Also he batted only one match needs more chances in slc league

    • Yes he’s a alright player.might be a good back up.If chamika get’s injured i’d like to see kamindu get a chance batting at 6. Chamika is probably one of the fittest guys in sri lanka cricket,unlikely he gets injured
