Sri Lanka finally had something to smile about: Kapugedera tore McClenaghan apart to win super over

Kapugedara and Milinda both are fine top order players. Without pressure they will destroy any bowling attack on the day. Constantly failing top order put lot of pressure on the middle where they need to rebuild without losing wickets. This is where Sri Lanka got in to trouble. If we have an inform top order things would change drastically. Now its no time change the batting order upside down so Chandimal and Dilshan should look to play without losing wickets at the top.

Why did they have a super over??

This is a good example to show that the RH/LH combination is the way to open an inning. We got 25 while NZ got 20.

So, why don't we open with Dilsha/Thisara or Dilshan/Siriwrdena followed by Chandimal or Thirimanne to keep the RH/LH going?

I have commented many times that we should open with the RH/LH combination and suggested Dilshan and Thisara should open.

Now, some of you might say that Thisara is not capable of opening. That is where the batting coach comes in. We all know what happened when Sanath was promoted to open. I feel Thisara will be a very effective opener if coached accordingly. He can play spin and is very capable of hitting over the in-field. Opponents will be hesitant to open with spin which in turn will prevent Dilshan being exposed to spin during the power play.
