Mystery spinner becomes mystery batsman

by Gaurav Sethi

No matter when you read this, Mendis will be still batting.

"We shall go on to the end, we shall bat in Jaffna
We shall bat on the seas and oceans
We shall bat with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be
We shall bat on the beaches
We shall bat on the landing grounds
We shall bat in the fields and in the streets
We shall bat in the hills

We shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were dismissed and defeated, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the Sri Lankan team, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old."
That's Mendis for you. 6th August, 2010. P Sara Oval, Colombo. Against India, who else.
