According to a reliable source Asantha De Mel the Chairman of Selectors is planning to use the Scotland Matches to determine which All-Rounders are best out of the 5 of them in the squad to be in the World Cup XI. Also, he plans to give Kusal Perea and Angelo Mathews as much Match Practice before the world cup while also monitoring their fitness. On the other hand, it`s said that Asantha De Mel will keep a close eye on Jeevan Mendis since he has not played international cricket in a while as if he succeeds in the Scotland matches he will be picked ahead of Jeffrey Vandersay who has featured in the international arena lately and has shown decent performance.
