Jeevan Mendis Funny Run Out vs. New Zealand
Daniel Vettori to Kumar Sangakkara, 1 run, OUT, this is just poor running from Jeevan Mendis. Breakdown in communication with Sangakkara as this one is cut away to extra-cover, with the batsman looking to complete two before he sees his partner not reacting at the other end. Mendis turns on the spot, and puts in the dive, but comically lands about a metre short of his crease as he falls flat on the ground. Tries to get his bat across, but crucially lets go off the handle. The throw, which was initially fired in at the wrong end, is quickly dispatched by the bowler to Ronchi, who whips off the bails as Mendis lies on the ground, wondering about better days.
