    Since this is tour series, it is the opportunity to do some
    experiments. We saw three senior batsmen in Sri Lanka team were rotated
    during last T20 series against South Africa. Even though that series was
    lost, it will be effective if same strategy is experimented again in
    this series for both ODIs and T20s.
    Such experiments are important to select the best teams for upcoming 2014 T20 world cup and 2015 CWC.
