    I've got to admit there are holes in my knowledge of Sri Lankan cricket, to the point I have no idea who their best keeper would be.

    Vaas has to be one of the bowlers. Maybe Malinga for the other.

    Happened upon this thread a bit late but;

    Ashantha de Mel
    Lasith Malinga


    De Mel is rumoured to be the fastest (accurate also) Sri Lankan bowler thus far, so I think he deserves his spot for that reason. I wonder whether there are any Sri Lankan fans who can confirm that?

    I'm saving Vaas for my first change.

    Mine is not the stringest either, which is why I asked Miagra if he wanted to continue.
    Prasanna seems a fair bet as he is excellent with the gloves and a competent bat. Vaas is a certainty for one spot and I will go with de Mel with the other.

    How about the keeper selection Watson?

    I remember Romesh Kaluwitharana for his 50 in the 1996 World Cup Final against Australia, whom he also seemed to play well against. He was always in the action, and I don't recall any major flaws in his keeping.

    Romesh Kaluwitharana

    Vaas is a definite. With 100 test wickets plus his world class performances in other formats I'll have to go for Malinga.

    The keeper really is a tough one. Do you go for a pure keeper like P Jayawardene or Goonatilleke, the spectacular Kalu, a batting keeper like Hashan Tillekeratne, Chandimal or Kuruppu; or give the gloves to Sanga and pick an all-rounder or an extra bat (probably not).

    In a year or so I'd possibly go for Chandimal but for the moment I'll throw Goonatilleke a vote.

    Dilshan really unlucky to miss out on an opening spot. Very tempted to vote for Goonatilleke as I think he was a better keeper. Prasanna has done a bit more to warrant a place though.

    I reckon we should probably go for two spinners and give both Murali and Herath a spot. The two Ratnayakes' are unlucky to miss out but I think that's the way to go.

    De Mel was a good English type seamer, but not the fastest. Malinga and TB Kehelgamuwa are the ones known to be fastest. The latter was a pre test era bowler, and famously sent Boycott's off peg cartwheeling before he brought down the bat.

    Malinga and two Ratnayake's are comparable. All three were plagued with injuries. But Ratnayake's played in a minnow team and still averaged pretty close to Malinga. And if they were fit, both had armoury better than Vaas and could have been better than Vaas. Additionally as Vaas they are handy with bat. Ravi Ratnayake is pretty good with the bat and Rumesh is useful.

    On keepers, the best keeper SL had was Mahesh Goonetilleke. Best keeper bat is PJ. Batsman keeper is a toss between Sangakkara and Brendon Kuruppu.
