Ajantha Mendis - All Set to Brake the Record

Today Sri Lanka is taking on Zimbabwe on Grameenphone Tri-Series. This is Sri Lanka's first ODI in the series. On Saturday Zimbabwe turns the table by beating Bangladesh by 38 runs. The match is scheduled to start on 0830 (LKT - Lanka Time) in Mirpur Ground.

Today's spot light goes to Ajantha Mendis who have already taken 48 wickets in 18 matches. If he could get another two wickets he will be the fastest to get 50 ODI wickets. Current record holder India's Ajith Agarkar has done it 23 games. He have also taken the 50th wicket against Zimbabwe in Harare, 1998.

Ajantha went wicketless in the last ODI, Sri Lanka's Zimbabwe tour in 2008. He got injured in club match in Sri Lanka and missed the 1st Bangladesh due to the injury. Lets wish him good luck to brake the 10 year old record in this match.
