5 players who can be tested en route to 2020 T20 WC

Sadeera Samarawickrama

1 Sadeera Samarawickrama – Sri Lanka seems to have found the perfect openers for ODI. He can be an option for T20s as he has an attacking mindset. He along with Kusal Perera will be a good combination with Avishka at 3.

2 Minod Bhanuka – Has the ability to open as well as bat in the middle order. Adds that flexibility to the lineup. A very promising batsman who could be a useful option going to the T20 WC.

3 Kamindu Mendis – Can play the finisher’s role with his entry in the lower middle order. Bowls ambidextrous which adds variety to the bowling lineup.

4 Lahiru Madushanka – Fast bowling all rounder. Showed his all round efforts in the SA emerging tour. Definitely someone to look out.

5 Tharindu Kaushal – Came onto the scene in 2015. Hasn’t been in the eye of selectors since then. His stats speak for himself as someone who can succeed in all 3 formats. Will be important going forward.

  1. Sro Lankan Pride, Completely agree with your arguments and choices. However Tharindu hasn’t shown any promise after coming back re modelling his actions. He is one bowler in my mind who has an attacking mindset and can spin the ball. Unfortunately i didn’t see much of him after he remodeled his actions. On a different note, what happened to Shaminda Eranga? I never heard anything about him. Surely someone here might shed some light about his current status.
