Profile

Chaminda Mendis is one of the stalwarts of first class cricket in Sri Lanka. The 32 year old right-handed batsman, who plays for Colts Cricket Club, has performed consistently well over the past ten years in domestic cricket. Unfortunately, he was forced to compete with the likes of Ranatunga, Mahanama, De Silva, Tillekaratne and Gurasingha for a place in the national team. It had been assumed that his time had passed. However, his selection for the A team on their tour of Kenya suggests that he has been not been forgotten. He is renowned as a patient and technically correct batsman, who has the ability to play long innings. He also bowls a little off spin. (17.01.2001)
