Kusal Perera is certain to open the innings once more, after his stellar hand in the last match, but Sri Lanka's major call will be whether to retain legspinning allrounder Seekkuge Prasanna, who was good with the bat, but expensive with the ball. There are two young batsmen in the squad, seeking their ODI debuts as well, but they are unlikely to play in the first match, given how much batting inexperience abounds in the XI.
