In Absence of Mahela Jayewardene and Kumar Sangakkara, Tillakaratne Dilshan is the biggest hop for Sri Lanka in the front line batsman. Chandimal and skipper Mathews himself also have ability to score slog. With some young talent, Lasith Malinga will lead the pace attack, while spinner Rangana Hearth will also give Sri Lanka some advantage in Indian peach.
