The probable playing X1 for the first three games should be 1. Dimuth 2.Avishka ( we cannot go to fast scoring WC with two senior citizens, having Avishka is a risk worth taking for the first three games)3.Dananjaya/Oshada ( though did not do well in this tournament,in SA he showed he has the qualities to succeed. But if the first wicket gives a good foundation can promote Kusal Perera here) 4.Mendis 5.Mathews  6.Kusal Perera 7.Thisara 8.Isuru 9.Jeewan /Hasaranga/Akila10.Lakmal 11.Malinga (Captain- the series losses were due to batting failure,he is respected internationally ,good tactics) This gives two fast scoring players in Avishka & Kusal,cannot depend on one alone & two to hold one end,Dimuth & Dananjaya/Oshada12.Thrimanne/Chandimal 13.Dananjaya/Oshada 14.Rajitha 15.Jeewan/Akila/Hasaranga.
