    good to finally get a 20/20 game in SRL. Dambulla day night games are dodgy(win the toss win the game) hopefully the pitches and the lights dont have affect on the games.

    As a Lankan fan i want to see major batting changes like getting rid of passengers and giving opportunity for those performing at domestic level.

    Also Lasith Malinga should get a look in after his 2 games of one day cricket since surgery he has taken 3-34 and 5-56.

    Muralitharan to open the batting with Jayasuriya for SL, IMO. The new Kalu-Jayasuriya partnership.

    Whom would you fit into the xI? Already they have Maharoof (lower-order runs), Thushara (extra pace, lower-order runs), Kulasekara (steady for ODIs, lower-order runs), Mendis (new-age phenomenon) and Muralitharan (enough said) in the last ODI so far, and that's not counting Vaas, Malinga and Dilhara. Will Sanath be bowling? We don't know if he can play as a full-fledged bowler now.

    Should the Indians send a full-strength ODI team? I suggest they don't. There's a more crucial series against New Zealand in New Zealand a little later, and you need your top players in form and full fitness for that. You will still need Dhoni, Yuvraj, Zaheer and Harbhajan here, but the reserves should get a game, and also things that need a little (or a lot of) improvement, should be given a go here.

    SL do have options in their bowling. I suggest Malinga will replace Maharoof or Mathews from the eleven but the batting is weak so they probably wont go take that option.

    At the moment the captain is struggling but cant envisige dropping him so will probably be Tharanga and Kapugedra getting the chop and i hope Dilshan and Paravithrana or Warnapura come in.

    The Lankans have this tendency to go in with three seamers for a one-dayer, so we've seen bowling-heavy selections come up lately. Had Mendis not been discovered, we would have three seamers, Murali and a rag-tag combination of Sanath, Mahela, Dilshan and who knows who else. They Lankans don't score too much, but bowl the other team out for even less, so that's what they need to keep doing. Maybe they can replace Kulasekara, since he's an average bowler and not the best batsman among the three seamers.

    Sachin, Ishant and Munaf are needed for the NZ series, so they can give this one a miss. They've defeated a stronger SL team (possibly the strongest in some time) a little while earlier, so they need to be ready for the series they've never clinched.

    The bottom five can have both Pathans, Harbhajan, Praveen Kumar and Dhawal Kulkarni, with Ravi Jadeja and Sreesanth in reserve. This should help the second line players assume a frontline role and those a little out of form to play themselves back to top form before the NZ series.

    Given that the one-day series in Sri Lanka coincides with the Duleep Trophy, everyone will likely participate in one tournament or the other barring injury. That said, it may still be a good idea to pick the squad based on our priorities ahead of the tour of New Zealand. Essentially, there are three openings in the test squad: a reserve middle-order batsman (Badrinath, Sharma or Pujara) and two reserve seamers (behind Zaheer-Ishant-Munaf, so it's mainly down to Praveen, Irfan and Sreesanth), one of whom may be an all-rounder (small chance for Jadeja here). Hence, it makes sense to get these boys in the Duleep Trophy and send the rest for the one-day series.

    Sehwag, Tendulkar, Gambhir, Raina, Yuvraj, Dhoni, Yusuf, Bhajji, Zaheer, Munaf, Ishant with Kohli, Praveen and Ojha as reserves.
