Sanath Jayasuriya did not have a good Indian Premier League. He had an even worse Standard Bank Pro20 when he played for the Nashua Dolphins. Is this a sign of old age catching up? Or the pace and bounce of South African pitches?
Jayasuriya’s performance in the T20 World Cup in England, which gets under way in weeks from now, will give us a clue of what is behind his recent drop in form.
Sanath’s performance is crucial if Sri Lanka hopes to win the T20 World Cup. Not only because of his ability to win matches single handedly, but also because he is occupying an important spot as an opening batsman.
A good start from the openers is important to get the team off and running.
So the question to you fans is, if Sanath fails in this T20 series, should he retire from ODIs and T20s and allow a youngster to open? IF yes, who should open the batting in his place?
