Agree completely that Sanath needs to be dropped.
They'll never give Kulatunga a chance IMO. If they wanted to, they would have at least included him in the 15 for the T20 WC. They had to make it 31 simply due to public pressure to put him in.
Personally disagree with Samaraweera playing this format. He's a test specialist and a rare one at that although he certainly has some good numbers in ODI's so far.
Dont think they will keep out both Mahela and Sanga for this one though. Perhaps one of them may take a breather.

May not make it for political reasons. There's a fair amount of negativity for his inclusion if the rumours are to be believed.
