This is a very controversial takeBatting - tests Sanga, ODI Kallis
Both were ATG test batsmen, but fairly mediocre ODI batsmen. Kallis was was too slow but set a base for guys like Klusener and Kemp (and later ABDV). Sanga was also mediocre and only boosted his average over the last 2 years (in many ways thanks to a monster CWC). He scored 11 of his 25 ODI 100s in the last 2 years of his career and boosted his average from 38.56 to 41.98. Beforehand he was no better than Russell Arnold.This is a very controversial take
Mubarak and Perera had potential but did not do well. Farveez was ill-managed from his debut. SL selectors wanted a seam bowler out of him and played him as such in tests. But in reality he was a #7 batsman and the floater in ODIs, who was one of the hardest hitters SL has ever produced. He should have never played tests unless other bowlers were injured. He should have been a #6/7 batting allr-ounder for SL. Even then he was good enough to take 135 wickets at 28 in ODIsa keeper averaging 38 in odis is pretty ****ing legit ngl.
would have stood out as more of an advantage in a team with better options at 5-8. SL have always had good top order bats and specialist bowlers of some description in odis but in the middle they cobbled together a lot of jehan mubarak, farveez maharoof, thisara perera and upal chandana.
