T20 Cricket World Cup 2016: A look at Sri Lanka Team Squad ICC T20 World Cup 2016: Boasting of the names like Tillakaratne Dilshan. Thesara Perrera, Dinesh Chandimal, Angelo Mathews, Lasith Malinga and others, the defending T20 Champions Sri Lanka would look forward to retain the title and in quest for their second title, they would do almost anything possible. After a great show delivered by the Lanka Tigers in this year’s World Cup, the fans must be expecting the same majestic performance from their favourite team.
Under the much expected captaincy of Angelo Matthews, it is likely that much of the same squad as of the World Cup, except Mahela Jayewardene and Kumar Sangakkara (both took retirement from the international cricket after the World Cup) will participate next year. Its time to unveil Sri Lanka Team Squad ICC T20 World Cup 2016:

Sri Lanka Team Squad ICC T20 World Cup 2016 “Team’s Strength”
The batting side consisting of experienced Tillakaratne Dilshan could do wonders for Sri Lanka, along with the support of new talent Dinesh Chandimal and captain Angelo Mathews. Dilshan is expected to do some fire work which could assist other batsmen in the line-up after him.
An inexperienced lower order of the team could prove to be a weak link. The bowling side is not so effective, except the likes of pacer Lasith Malinga, Rangana Herath and skipper and spinner Angelo Mathews, who could be constant threats to the opposing teams. In the batting department, there are some new faces who are not yet experienced- Lahiru Thirimanne, Diruth Karunaratne among others. The experienced duo of Sanga and Jayewardene will be missed deeply.
- Batting: Tillakaratne Dilshan, Dinesh Chandimal and Angelo Mathews.
- Bowling: Lasith Malinga, Angelo Mathews and Rangana Herath.
The Lankan Tigers are a team to watch out for as they will be much more used to the sub-continent pitches in India.
