[Cricket] Most wickets in debut Test series - World record by Ajantha Mendis

Most wickets by a player in his debut 3-match Test series; a 60+ years old world record has been broken. By whom? By Sri Lankan newly found precious mystery spinner Ajantha Mendis. He produced this new world record yesterday, 2008-08-10 with the wicket of Sachin Tendulkar, another master of cricket. Up to now, he has got 25 wickets in this series, and he has passed the 24 wickets record held by English bawler named Alec Bedser.

Ajantha Mendis has so many variations, and so difficult to read from the hand. Most of the Indian batsmen are still struggling to play against him while he is improving with his variations and accuracy.

In the current India-Sri Lanka Test series he played in all 3 matches (and 6 innings) and performed fabulously. Still he is bawling in the 2nd inning of the last Test match and 5 more wickets are left in Indian team. So we wish Mendis to get some more wickets out of those and improve his record into an untouchable one in history.

Well done Menda.

Update:
Ajantha added another wicket to his record, now it's 26 wickets in a 3-match Test series. He is the man of the series in his debut.

  2. Now SriLanka has a better spin combination, a good partner for Murali.
