Mendis’s heroics unfolded during the two-match Test series against Bangladesh. Let’s dissect his sublime performance:

1. Century in Both Innings

In the first Test, with Sri Lanka reeling at 57/5, Mendis walked in at No. 8. What followed was sheer magic. He stitched a colossal 202-run partnership with Dhananjaya de Silva, rescuing the team and propelling them to a respectable total of 280. Mendis’s contribution? A magnificent 102 runs. But he wasn’t done yet. In the second innings, he replicated his brilliance, scoring another century (164 runs) with 16 fours and 6 sixes. This feat made him the first player batting at number seven or lower to achieve two centuries in a single Test match.

2. Dominance Over Bangladesh

Sri Lanka’s dominance continued in the second Test. Mendis, batting at No. 8 once again, unleashed his full repertoire. His career-best innings of 164 runs showcased his audacity and skill. The visitors posted a formidable total of 418, and their bowlers dismantled Bangladesh for a mere 182. Sri Lanka clinched victory by a staggering margin of 328 runs.

3. Inspiration for the Future

Upon receiving the ICC Men’s Player of the Month award, Mendis expressed his elation. “This recognition motivates us as players to deliver for the team, country, and fans,” he said. He also acknowledged his fellow nominees, Mark Adair and Matt Henry, as excellent competitors. Mendis’s return to the national setup after a hiatus since 2022 has been nothing short of spectacular.
