Different team for T20 for Sri Lanka ??

Asantha De mel said recently (

"We will pick a young side with players who can make a clean strike of the ball,” he said.Sri Lanka batsmen were greatly exposed in the final the way the West Indies batsmen went about hitting sixes and clearing the boundary almost at will to reach a respectable total of 137 for six after scoring just 32 runs in the first ten overs. They hit a total of seven sixes in the final.
When it was Sri Lanka’s turn to bat none of their front line batsmen were able to clear the boundary and the only six that was hit came from tailender Nuwan Kulasakara.“We really have to assess the situation and start building a team of T20 cricketers for the next World T20 in Bangladesh in 2014,” said De Mel.
“We need to find some strong hitters who can clear the boundary successfully. Players like Mahela Jayawardene and Angelo Mathews don’t have the power so they adopt different methods to score runs like the scoop and the reverse sweep. Even playing those strokes you need the strength to clear the fielders,” he said."

I dont know how many of you will agree to him :) but I have a suggestion for the T20 Squad for Sri Lanka. Here they are

Angelo Mathews
Thisara Perera
Nuwan Kulasekara
Lasith Malinga
Ajantha Mendis
Jeewan Mendis
Dilshan Munaweera
Chamara kapugedara
Mahela Udawaththa
Kaushalya Weerarathne
Ferviz Maharoof
Banuka Rajapakshe
Dhammika Prasad
Kanishka Alvitigala
Shaminda Eranga

What do you think ??
