“Sri Lankan Batsman Matches Javed Miandad’s Historic Test Record”

In a remarkable performance, Sri Lanka’s young batting talent, Kamindu Mendis, has matched a longstanding record set by Pakistan’s cricket legend, Javed Miandad, for the highest number of Test runs after four innings.

At just 25 years old, Mendis has accumulated a total of 419 runs in his first four Test innings, mirroring Miandad’s achievement dating back to 1976.

Making his Test debut against Australia in Galle during 2022, Mendis showcased his prowess with the bat by scoring 61 runs in his maiden innings. His stellar contribution played a pivotal role in Sri Lanka’s convincing victory over the visitors, with the home team triumphing by an innings and 39 runs.

This accomplishment underscores Mendis’s promising talent and solidifies his position as a rising star in Sri Lanka’s cricketing landscape.

He missed an opportunity to tie with Mohammad Azharuddin for the most centuries after four test innings as he ran out of partners in the fourth innings.

Kamindu Mendis has amassed an incredible 419 runs, matching the record held by Javed Miandad, with scores of 61, 102, 164, and 92 not out.

In the series against Bangladesh, his only failure came in the second inning of the second Test inning when he was only able to score nine runs.

Pakistan’s former captain and legendary batsman Javed Miandad had also scored 419 runs in his first four Test innings. In his first four innings of the Test, Miandad scored 163, 25 not out, 25, and 206
