Chandimal might get dropped from T20 Team when Mathews is Ready.But I feel SL must go for another option in T20s.
T20 Vice Captain Suranga Lakmal Benched while Pradeep and Chameera bowling all over the place. Malinga recently proved that he is still the best bowler in Sri Lanka by becoming Joint Highest Wicket Taker in Recently concluded Domestic T20 Tournament, also bowled well in the first game of the 50 Over Tournament Yesterday. Maybe Selectors wanted him to play a full Domestic season before making a comeback, to prove his fitness and form. But with this current SL bowling attack need someone like Malinga with all the experience and leadership. Other bowlers also tend to bowl well when Malinga is around.
Batting Looks Pretty Much Settled with Top order firing more often than not. Upul Tharanga and Chandimal are the two weak links in this t20 team in my opinion but Tharanga doing just fine these days. Chandimal needs to find a way to survive as soon as possible if he is going to be a regular face in this format. Hope Sri Lanka will use Isuru Udana and Lakmal in place of Pradeep. Yesterday match was a Good Wake Up Call. It also Proved that Captaincy is nothing when you select poor bowlers which was the case with Mathews in most of the times.
