When he first arrived on the international stage, Ajantha Mendis was an absolute nightmare to the opposition batsmen. Even his team-mates who practised with him in the nets for hours conceded that they had little idea what was to come out from those hands. Comparisons to the legendary Muttiah Muralidaran were evident and very early in his career Mendis was expected to shoulder his country's huge expectations once the master bowed into the sunset.
