Pirana was atrocious in the series just gone, and Mathews was easily the best Sri Lankan batsman against the moving ball, so get him to three. Sanga isn't in good nick and SL needs to break up the collapsererers. Prasaana is a gun keeper and he scored a good ton in England iirc but overall from what I've seen of him he throws it away too easily and Sri Lanka could do with a bit more batting atm. Randiv gets dropped for a pacer because its Aus and he is dead weight anyway. I don't know what the other spinners are like so maybe they have a gun up their sleeve to play.
Anyway, hope SL smash you Aussie ****s in this series.
