Look at SL's top six for the First Test match against Australia recently and add say Thirimanne, Chandimal and Paranativana.
Then they can play Herath and say Kulasakera which means that they are still showing some, not heaps but some inclination to win the match as Herath, Kula, Mathews, Dilshan have the potential to actually claim 10 third/fourth innings wickets.
I honestly think with increased batting lineups they would be very difficult to bowl out twice for the reasons mentioned earlier - competition for places and more cautious batting.
