Numbers don’t tell lies and they also never tell the over roll quality of the batsman. But according current form should SL team use Tesara Perera (who add power hitting specially to Indian spinners ) for Sangakkara in T20 World Cup 2014 final?

I think Sanga should drop for Tesara with no disrespect to legendary players like him though.

This is my team as batting order: Kusal Perera TM Dilshan Mahela Jayawardene Thisara Perera Lahiru Thirimanne Angelo Mathews Nuwan Kulasekara Seekkuge Prasanna Sachithra Senanayake Rangana Herath Lasith Malinga Fell free to comment about this factor and selection.
