22-man squad- Dimuth Karunaratne (ODI captain), Dasun Shanaka (T20I captain), Niroshan Dickwella, Thisara Perera, Kamil Mishara, Angelo Mathews, Danushka Gunathilaka, Pathum Nissanka, Ashen Bandara, Oshada Fernando, Dhananjaya Lakshan, Wanindu Hasaranga, Ramesh Mendis, Nuwan Pradeep, Ishan Jayaratne, Dilshan Madushanka, Dushmantha Chameera, Akila Dananajaya, Kusal Perea and Avishka Fernando (If they pass the fitness test)
Dhananjaya Lakshan is the next Wanindu Hasaranga as a seam-bowling all-rounder and has to be developed early with international experience before the world cup t20 and ODI. The fast-bowling in the west-indies was really concerning as they lacked the penetrative aspect of fast-bowlers and leaked many runs in the last 5-10 overs, improving they could not handle pressure. Dhananjaya Lakshan has shown he can swing the bowl a lot and bowl under pressure, bat as a power hitter at the end of an innings.
Ishan Jayaratne is the leading wicket-taker in the t20 domestic tournament and in-country like Sri Lanka, where spinners dominate it shows his skills and character. He also proved he could handle a bat to contribute with some runs and with wickets.
Kamil Mishara is another Pathum Nissanka in the making. He scored high in school cricket and has already has become used to domestic cricket and could be developed early if he is drafted into the squad to be moulded for the future like Dilshan Madushanka.
