Sri Lanka vice-captain Lahiru Thirimanne, suggested he would continue to bat in the lower middle order until the World Cup, despite having tasted his greatest successes higher up.

Thirimanne struck two centuries opening the innings in this year's Asia Cup - for which he received a Player of the Tournament award - but he has been more often seen at No. 5 or lower, as Sri Lanka seek support for Angelo Mathews towards the end of a one-day innings.

Thirimanne said Sri Lanka had not finalised their 11 for the first ODI, but they do have options for the opening position.
