With a new Captain, this time Angelo Mathews, and new Coach as well, Sri Lanka will try to find out the best team composition and soon as possible.

Kusal Perera was in sparkling form during the T20 series against India and seems most suitable to bat at number three, instead of Kusal Mendis who is making a comeback after India tour snub.
