Jeevan Mendis is considered a batsman who bowls in Sri Lanka - or at best a "batting allrounder" - which I've always found interesting because after watching a fair bit of him (batting and bowling) I'm quite convinced he'd be coached and selected as a specialist bowler in Australia. He'd give our Test squad a shake even if he batted like Chris Martin, but he just sends down a few
in comparison to the rest of the spin stocks in Sri Lanka, even domestically.
