Yes, Sanga can manage the run rate, Mahela is the best opener we have at present.

The two-ball rule has to be changed, it takes the beauty of reverse swing out of the game. they should make better cricket balls which will last long for 50 overs than changing the rules of the game.

if am not mistaken, there was still tiny bit of reverse for malinga in the last match, a very little tho, not enough to trouble the batter.
Yes either they change the rule or like Alan Donald suggested; legalise ball tampering :-P since the game is so much loaded against bowlers

Thanks UC_7 , yes even i noticed a bit of reverse swing, Mahela has a great challenge setting field to Ajantha, Akila n Herath, coz they spin it both ways n with 4 fielders outside the circle itl be tough. will test Mahelas captaincy skills..
