Thirimanne & Fernando included

Left handed batsman Lahiru Thirimanne and right arm fast bowler Dilhara Fernando have been included in the team for today’s tri series ODI encounter against hosts Zimbabwe.

It is also learnt that Ajantha Mendis and right arm seamer Nuwan Kulasekara is to be replaced for today’s game.

Today’s game can be considered as a dress rehearsal for the final to be played in the same venue (Harare) as both teams have booked a berth for Wednesdays series finale.

    Why he should include in the team ? A batsmen who don’t know to play front foot straight drives for fast bowlers

    Sri lanka will need some genuine pace to be competitive in the Asia cup as all the Asian teams are experts in playing spin. Inclusion of Dilhara Fernando and Lasith Malinga would be a good move..
