    the game. Kyle Palmieri scored two straight goals in the third period to rally
    the Anaheim Ducks past the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 on Tuesday night. Sri Lanka
    captain Angelo Mathews has said Kusal Mendis 176 in Pallekele was the
    performance upon which the series against Australia pivoted.Mendis had come to
    the crease with Sri Lanka still 80 runs behind, and already two second-innings
    wickets down. But his faultless innings spurred a middle-order resurgence, and
    Sri Lanka posted a score of 353, on a quickly wearing track. Australia fell well
    short of the target of 268. Sri Lanka then won the Galle Test in under three
    days, and were dominant through the back end of the SSC match.The key point I
    thought was Kusal Mendis innings - that was the turnaround for the whole series
    after getting all out for 117 at Pallekele, Mathews said. It was a special
    effort by him to get us on to a winning track. From there onwards it really
    kicked off. The confidence levels were sky high from there. We worked very hard
    and actually we worked harder than the first two Tests ahead of the third Test
    as we were desperate to finish this 3-0.Despite having top-scored in each of the
    first two Tests, Mendis was the second-highest run-scorer in the series,
    surpassed by 24-year-old Dhananjaya de Silva, who collected 325 runs at an
    average of 65. Mendis, however, had only scored one first-class century before
    this series, and had been picked almost solely on potential, when he initially
    made the Test team last October.Its just pure talent, with the young batsmen,
    Mathews said. I suppose Dhananjaya has played a bit of first-class cricket, but
    Kusal Mendis hasnt. Weve got to take that chance with some people sometimes, and
    its paid off. You can see the way they batted in extreme conditions - it was
    turning square. They had Nathan Lyon, Jon Holland, and Steve OKeefe in the first
    game. Mitchell Starc has been outstanding in the laast three or four weeks as
    well.dddddddddddd The calmness and composure of Dhananjaya at No. 7 was great.
    He handled that pressure well. Kusal Perera also played some brisk knocks, so
    the future is bright.Rangana Herath, however, was Sri Lankas key performer in
    the series. He claimed 28 wickets at an average of 12.75. Only Muttiah
    Muralitharan has taken more wickets for Sri Lanka in a single series - against
    Zimbabwe in 2001. Herath had also been visibly hampered by a groin injury during
    the SSC Test, in which he took 13 for 145.Rangana was fantastic, Mathews said.
    He was bowling off one leg, but one leg was enough for him. He got hit while
    batting and then he had a groin strain. He couldnt run and he couldnt jump. He
    was just landing the ball on one leg, and he is unbelievable. He has taken 28
    wickets in the series and is one of the best I have seen. The batsmen are having
    a nightmare facing him no matter how well they play spin. He has been a great
    team man as well.Herath himself said that he did not envision a whitewash
    against Australia, prior to the series. He echoed Mathews praise of Mendis and
    de Silva, but also had encouraging words for left-arm wristspinner Lakshan
    Sandakan, who took nine wickets at an average of 23 across the three Tests -
    though, he did not get a breakthrough at the SSC.Sandakan had a good game at
    Pallekele, Herath said. What I believe is, that when you have three spinners,
    all three are not going to get wickets in the same game. It will vary. He is a
    very good bowler. He has to also learn a few things - like control. I am pretty
    sure that he will learn quickly, and become a very good bowler. ' ' '
