I dont think the list of Sri Lanka's most successful openers in ODIs tells us anything. if you look at Dilshan and Marvan both those players would easily overtake Tharanga had they played the same amount of matches as operners. The problem I have with Tharanga is he is a slow scoring batsmen when compared to his early days where he was introduced as a possible repalcement to Jayasooriya. He is slower than Mahela and Sanga when it comes to scoring. Also he has definetly got a problem in his technique. Saying that I dont think there is anyone else (apart from Mahela) to replace him as a opener. I hate to see him bat at 6 or 7. I think someone like Jeevan Mendis should (in odis) bat at 6 or 7
