Ajantha Mendis signs with Sydney Thunder for Big Bash League
Sri Lanka's Ajantha Mendis is the latest signing for the Sydney Thunder, providing a dangerous spin threat in the T20 Big Bash League starting this month.
Mendis, has played 17 Tests since his 2008 debut, taking 64 wickets at 34.20, but it is in Twenty20 that he has really excelled.
The Thunder's coach, fellow Sri Lankan Chandika Hathurusinge, believes the spinner is a key addition to a team that includes plenty of batting firepower with the likes of David Warner, Michael Clarke, Michael Hussey, Usman Khawaja and Eoin Morgan.
