Mendis mystery overhyped says Kapil Dev

Kapil Dev claims Mendis is yet to prove his credentials and the media has "highlighted him a bit too prominently".

Below are a few excerpts from the article, which can be found in full here.

"No doubt that Mendis' performance in the on-going India-Sri Lanka series is very good but media has highlighted him a bit too prominently. It is too early to say if he will continue to perform like this for long,"

"So far Mendis has done extraordinary well and launched his cricket carrier in a marvelous way, but Indian batsmen are capable enough to tackle his bowling, he added."

Kapil Dev takes a fantastic diving catch to dismiss Saeed Anwar off the bowling of Ravi Shastri in the 1990 Australasia cup in Sharjah.
