Having already won the series, Sri Lanka to make wholesale changes for the third ODI against Bangladesh, to be played at R Premadasa (today) July 31st, Cricket Age reliably learns.
Accordingly, top order batsman Shehan Jayasuriya, fast bowling allrounder Dasun Shanaka and leg spinner Wanindu Hasaranga will be included in the playing eleven, replacing Lahiru Thirimane, Isuru Udana and Nuwan Pradeep.
Shehan, an elegant left-hand batsman, has been in prime form in recent months. He performed exceptionally well during Sri Lanka A team’s tour of India and smashed a half-century against Bangladesh in the warm up match as well.
Dasun Shanaka also had a successfull India tour with three quick fire scores of 30, 20 and 44. In the warm up match against Bangladesh as well, he smashed a whirlwind half century, laden with half a dozen sixes.
Wanindu, meanwhile, is another fringe player, who are making big strides as an explosive batsman lower down the order, apart from his accurate leg spin bowling.
