Murali would probably have been the first choice bowler for any side. Players like Lokuarachchi who can offer a bit with the bat won't have as much impact as you expect - Twenty20 games are largely won by the top 4, top 6 at a push.
You probably have a point there.....But as a Sri Lankan I really want SL to remain focussed on the Australian Series. I really won't be bothered if SL don't even make it past the Group Stages....
