Malinga:  Arguably the best fast bowler in T20.Hard to pick in slog over’s .West Indies key to success is they played exceptionally in slog over’s with the help of Darren Sammy. It would be interesting to see how much West indies can target in 5 over’s out of which Malinga bowls 3 over’s .

Samuel Badree: He has been underrated bowler has been overshadowed by Sunil Narine, But has proved his worth in the championship. He has picked 10 wickets so far this tournament. Sri lankans are good playing spin. Should see how keeps his nerve

Sunil Narine: He is the hardest bowler to pick in current era. Picked up 6 wickets so far

Rangana Herath: Hasn’t played first three games, but was picked for last game against New Zealand. Produced a magical spell  picked up 5 for 3 which helped Sri Lanka to semis.
