My Test squad for Pakistan tour

Dimuth Karunaratne plays a shot

In Pakistan domestic games scores of 600+ are being posted. This in my opinion is our best batting lineup for subcontinent conditions.

4 debutants are selected due to their exceptional performances in club cricket and A team matches.

The experience of Mathews & Chandimal will add value to the unstable middle-order. Left handers will be crucial when it comes to countering Yasir Shah & Shadab Khan.

3 fast bowlers who can touch 140kph will be a bonus on those conditions.

1 Dimuth Karunaratne (Captain)

2 Oshada Fernando

3 Kusal Mendis

4 Angelo Mathews

5 Kusal Perera

6 Dinesh Chandimal (Keeper)

7 Kamindu Mendis

8 Dilruwan Perera

9 Lakshan Sandakan

10 Kasun Rajitha

11 Lahiru Kumara

Reserves

Pathum Nissanka

Priyamal Perera

Lasith Ambuldeniya

Asitha Fernando
