Nothing is working for the ODI team so it’s time go back to our late 90’s early 2000’s batting format.
Get someone to anchor the innings like Attaputu. Karunaratne anyone? Having two smashing openers upfront is not working and the rest of batting is just made up of hitters and dashers. When it all falls apart, it really falls apart.
Don’t care who the other opener is, but there needs to be an anchor. With Dimuth doing the English County circuit before the World Cup also now makes alot of sense. Would go completely bold and even make him captain (or even VC with Malinga). Kudos to the selectors for being brave/ bold with the test team, now they need to be likewise with the ODI team too. At the rate we are going, anything changing is better than no change.
Some different thinking is required. Sometimes you need to go back to crawling before you can walk.
