it is so ridiculous to send a bowler as the 3rd batsman!

there is no need for a poll, it definitely is stupid.Yes, he might have pulled it off but there is only so much you can experiment in a T20 match.Resting two key players from a T20 match itself is so stupid but if it was to give Mathews a go at captaincy then fine but Malinga should have played.

Its a technique that comes in useful; bowlers have developed themselves into sloggers who can muscle the ball around - a prime example is Thissera Perera. So captains have used this technique in the past to success, especially in IPL and so on, so it wasnt exactly a ridiculous idea, but maybe if he had been delayed to number 4 or so, so that a better platform could have been built.
