Ajantha Mendis

Ajantha Mendis. What do you guys think of this spinner? Ripped through the Indian line-up with ease  :'(

The anticipation of him emerging from the pavilion, and his walk from the boundary to the centre, is almost surreal. The sound of a passionate Indian crowd all chanting "Sachin, Sachin" as they wait in anticipation, followed by the enormous roar when he emerges onto the field, is electrifying.

Looks a good prospect... he can actually turn the ball which is a plus!

He's sri lankan Sambo. Anyway he is the new mystery spinner to look out for as no one could actually pick what he was actualy bowling. He seemed to bowl a different ball every ball so no batsmen had any clue what way the ball was going. However with the amount of technology in the game today how long will i t be untill batsmen figure him out.

I wonder if it's true that even the Sril Lankan's can't pick him in the nets.
