The Discrimination of a young and Experience Leg and Off Spinner with various other variations Adjantha Mendis
The following are the facts obtained from the internet of the following one day and 20/20 bowlers
Ajantha Mendis, Lasith Malinga, Rangana Hearath, S Senenayake,and S Prasanna and in the one day and 20/20 Ajantha Mendis comes on top of every one of them in the recent and the long term statistics and also in Tests if in the two Tests he was given after returning from injury in the first Test in the 1st innings against Bangladesh he had carrier best of 6 for and in the 2nd innings most of his overs were bowled when seam was not prominent on a dead wicket a part time spinner and another spinner being made use of almost most of the overs where the seam was prominent. In the test against South Africa he was not given a chance to play in Galle a spinner friendly pitch but given the SSC match here the other two spinners were given about 180 overs each to his such a low of about 28 overs if he was utilized same as the other two he would have shown his capabilities.
Why was Spinner Ajantha Mendis dropped for the finals of Asia cup and Spinner Senanayake retained
Adjantha Mendis who before the finals of the last Asia Cup was the highest wicket taker in Asia cup 2014 with 9 wickets in only 3 matches with a fantastic strike rate of a wicket for every 17 balls left out of the final compared with , Lasith Malinga 6 wickect and spinner Senanayake the selectors 1st Choice spinner with only 4 wickets and a strike rate of 57 three time more than Ajantha Mendis, retained for the finals would not Ajantha Mendis be completely demoralized as in the last 50/50 world cup also he was left out in the finals while having a strike rate very close to Murali and a economic rate the least in the whole world cup of 3.3 to Murali’s 4.11 supporting statistics from cricnfo can be obtained and we lost the cup and there has been no explanation as to the reason he was left out. This Asia cup omission also with no logical explanation but most probably would have miss him getting the man of the series as he would have had to obtain only 3 wickets more to retain his fantastic strike rate of 17 this may affect his performance in the next world cup if he is in the squad and in the eleven for one day world cup in2015. The above statistics were obtain from the 2014 Asia Cup statistics and
