Mr. X - As you so foolishly think, If the team is decided and the batting order is going to change according to a lean patch of individuals in the previous series, for each new series; the team SL would have made a world record by now for constantly swapping so many who have failed repeatedly in many series during past 18 months(K Mendis/Chandimal/Gunathilake/Sadeera/Kapugedera/Thisara).

In that series Vs SA, SL won the last 2 odis by putting up 300 runs, mainly due to the vital 50+ 1st wkt solid stands put up in less than 10 overs by opening pair Dikka & Upul. Without that upfront launching pad, SL would have never put up 300 or won those 2 odis. Besides, who will drop the most productive front order SL batsman (Tharanga) in past 18 months scored over thousand runs going at 50 average and 90+ strike rate, just because he failed in one series after so many consecutive productive series?

After all, we have only a few months remaining up to the WC. do u think that kind of swapping is logical?

I am not any one's fan but when you look at this kind too many of dumb ideas posting in these blogs, you can't really blame the UT fans for repeatedly posting blogs, polls etc to highlight his achievements.
