WRT SL bowling, I would play Maharoof in place of Wijekoon and consider Lokuarachchi in place of Mubarak very strongly in crucial matches coming up.
As far as NZ selections, I think Bracewell's decision to keep a guy like Jeetan Patel sitting it out in matches like these where he could have made a difference is inexplicable, IMO.
Would have, should have ifs and buts NZ has lost its last 5 games in world tournuments against Sri Lanka, They are just Mediocre, Shane Bond never troubles Sri Lankans on good pitches. So yes i am going to rave on about this till the next Nz Srilanka meeting
