Rest of squad should be

13. Kamindu mendis – Again a good attacking player. For T20, we don’t need much anchoring players.need attacking players. So DDS OR CHANDI WILL BE OUT AND KAMINDU WILL BE IN PLAYING XI FOR T20

14. Dananjaya lakshan – can do many roles, quality backup player.

15. Akila / Praveen – Akila is okay for ODI. But for T20 Praveen is better. because Akila goes expensive with higher economy rates 

16. Binura / pradeep – depending on performance 

17.Ashen bandara, 18. Pathum nissanka 

19. Lahiru madhushanka – Backup for Chamika 

20. Ramesh mendis – handy player 

Maheesh theekshana –  he can be a mystery Triumph card in world cup if used at the right time. Can be the 3rd spinner if one spinner fails
