Will this be the end of Sanath Jayasuriya's reign?

Sanath Jayasuriya, the oldest player in modern cricket is to miss his usual position as the opening batsman during the upcoming One day series in India.

Speaking at a press briefing held in Colombo this afternoon, the captain of the Sri Lankan team, Kumar Sangakkara said Sanath will bat at the number six position in the ODI series.

According to Sangakkara this decision was taken due to the need of an all-rounder in the middle order.

The cricket analysts say this would be the first step of removing Sanath Jayasuriya from Sri Lankan squad.

In the ODI series T.M. Dilshan and Upul Tharanga will open the batting for Sri Lanka, Sangakkara added.

However, it was reported that T.M Dilshan has sustained an injury during a practice session this morning, but expect to recover before the Indian tour begins.

Sri Lankan team will play five one day international matches against the Indian team during the upcoming series.
