The ongoing test match between England and Sri Lanka in Galle saw batsman Kusal Mendis fired by Stuart Broad for a duck.

Unfortunately, this is the right-handed batter’s fourth consecutive zero. This comes after the Sri Lanka series in South Africa where Mendis scored just 12 points in four innings.

Most consecutive ducks in the tests hitting at the first 6 positions:

5 Danny Morrison

4 Pankaj Roy

4 Mohinder Amarnath

4 Marc Waugh

4 Kusal Mendis

As for the ongoing first test, Sri Lanka won the draw and chose to beat. Dinesh Chandimal led the camp in the absence of Dimuth Karunaratne.

However, as soon as Kusal Mendis stepped out, netizens were quick to point out his poor form with the bat. While some said he had all the talent to perform at the highest level, others wanted him out of the squad.

Previously, former Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene, while speaking to England’s Nasser Hussain in an interview with Daily Mail, had chosen Kusal Mendis as the player to watch during the series.
