Jayasuriya should not be playing at all so he should be treated like he is not needed.

Not only he was wrong in sending him low, he was wrong in many other aspects.

hey guys, y do u think that sanga made the wrong call sending sanath low down the order ? think abt the match situation, until 14 or 16th over chandimal and mahela was batting. There after nathan Mc: and scott styris was balling so they were turnig the ball away from the left hander and that is the reason why he sent kapu and anjo 2nd of all think about sanath batting power compare to earlier days, he still can play the big shots against quickies but under last match circumstances batsman has to generate all the power behind the shots because of the slow nature of the wicket and the ballers so if u compare 3 of them kapu and mathews can use the long handdle better than sanath.

yeah spot on he should have sent in the left hander..mahela got out bcoz da ball held in the sky coz of the wind..besides..sananth hit 30 odd in the practice game against south africa..he should've
on the other had kapu was also in form ..but all in all it would have been better had snath come in early

he has to play open look at dilshan 16 balls wasted in power play 3(19) balls he has no plan how to bat poor foot movment,not time well also not bat come to ball it means his form going away that is not fair if sanath batting with mahela may be 50+ runs will come power play

The experience of Sana should have been kept him at the top or otherwise he shouldn't have been in the team. There is something bad happening to Sana. Seniority is a big factor in our teams where as non-sub continental teams play differently. Mahela at the top will not work in this situation. IPL is a different setup.
