Colombo, Aug 5 (UNI) After being thrashed by the Indians by a whopping 170 run margin in the second Test at Galle, Sri Lankan selectors have decided to go in for changes in the fast bowling department, putting veteran players Chaminda Vaas and Nuwan Kulasekara under the scanner for their lacklustre performance in the last match.

The axe may also fall on opener Michael Vandort due to his poor performance in the first two Tests.

''The selectors are discussing changes in the pace department and whether to continue with Michael Vandort,'' a source said.

Young fast bowler Dammika Prasad, who was impressive in the practice game against Lanka Board XI, could make his debut at Colombo.

The 25-year-old may come in place of Kulasekara, who falied to pick up a wicket at Galle.

Prasad, who has played three ODIs for Sri Lanka, saw his promising one-day career interrupted by injury before touring England and Zimbabwe with Sri Lanka 'A' last year.

The third Test gets underway in Colombo on Friday.
