PALLEKELE:- Sri Lanka coach Graham Ford described Kusal Mendis' 176 as "one of the best" he's seen, and said the batsman's temperament had impressed him as well. At the end of day four, Mendis' innings still appears a monumental anomaly in a match in which the next highest score is 47. "What can you say? It's one of the best innings I've ever seen," Ford said. "It was. He seemed to have a plan - and option - against all the bowlers. He showed real composure.”–Agencies
