Sanath playing at No. 6 is a good move - Roshan Abeysinghe

What will be interesting is the new role Sanath Jayasuriya will be playing in the ODI’s.

Given the responsibility to bat with the lower order at no 6 Jayasuriya may come in when the mandatory ball change takes place and with the batting power play also available. I am sure it is bound to be a good move on the part of the Sri Lankan think tank as Jayasuriya loves the harder ball and field restrictions to open his broad shoulders besides taking on a tiring bowling line up.

Whilst the rest of the side look settled, as I emphasized in my last column, it is time that Thilina Kandamby be brought into the playing XI. With Dilshan and Tharanga down to open and Sangakkara and Jayawardane batting at 3 and 4 and Jayasuriya at 6, one wonders what the final choice would be. It is obviously a tussle between Thilan Samaraweera and Kandamby and the choice would be any body’s guess though young Kandamby will naturally make a very strong case for him.
