danushka and dickwella/kusal should open the batting and tharanga should bat at 4, he should be doing what mahela did which is to bat through out the inning , we all know he is weak against the swinging ball so why not play him at 4 wher e the ball doesnt swing as much and let him work the spinners for singles which he is quite good at.
