The Cricketry’s 11 for the next ODI with Bangladesh

After the historical cricket match, yesterday, where the great Malinga retired from ODIs, we are heading towards the second ODI of the series.

This is a very important game for Sri Lanka on two fronts.

  1. This is the series decider. That is if we win the match, we are the series winners. This will be a huge morale boost for us moving forward.
  2. If we win this next month, the third match will be a dead rubber where we can experiment with new players.

The Cricketry 11 for the second ODI with Bangladesh

  1. Dimuth Karunarathne
  2. Kusal Janith Perera (if fit)
  3. Avishka Fernando
  4. Kusal Mendis
  5. Angelo Mathews
  6. Dhananjaya De – Silva
  7. Dasun Shanka (This guy is a suitable replacement for misfiring Thisara. If you agree, here is our article on a few others who are much better than Thisara)Is it time we look beyond Thisara Perera?
  8. Akila Dhananjaya (We need to give him as many opportunities as possible to see if he can get to his former skill)
  9. Isuru Udana (With Malinga gone, we need a death over specialist)
  10. Lahiru Kumara
  11. Nuwan Pradeep

Is it time we look beyond Thisara Perera?

We feel that this is a much more balanced side where we have six bowling options. From the batting perspective, everybody till Isuru Udana is handy with the bat.
