“Our wicket-taking potential is less it’s a big loss for us because Akila Dananjaya is not playing. He is one bowler who used to take two to three wickets in the middle overs. Dananjaya took a lot of wickets this year and against India he took six wickets and almost won the match for us,” said chairman of cricket selectors Ashantha de Mel. “We are sending him to India for testing and hopefully we can get him cleared as quickly as possible. We are also trying to get Tharindu Kaushal also cleared so we can have the option of playing them in the World Cup. Both turn the ball. (Lakshan) Sandakan is there at the moment but you need at least one off spinner or someone who can come in the middle and spin the ball and take wickets. We need wicket takers in the middle overs then the end overs become easy,” he said.
