This stupid Batting order has failed in every crucial and final matches. We could remember Commonwealth bank series 2012 final, T20 CWC final 2012 and even this final failed due to this poor batting order.
Dilshan could have strengthened the opening with Chandimal while Mahela is strengthening the middle with other youngsters. Mahela should play in the middle as the most experienced player.
That is why 1996 Sri Lanka could win the world cup final. Experienced batsmen always stood back of aggressive youngsters. Youngsters had no pressure because experienced are behind them. If youngsters got out early experienced had no hesitation because they knew that they have to finish the game themselves.
