(B) Ajantha Mendis.

Sri Lanka army cricket committee noticed his talents when he played a cricket match against the army under 23 division 11 during 2003/2004 tournaments. Following this he was invited to enlist in the regular force of the Sri Lanka army, this was particularly due to the low number of cricketers from Colombo schools joining the army in the recent years. He enlisted, partly due to the reason that his father, the bread-winner for the family had died the week before due to a heart attack. following the basic training he played for the army team and saw active military service as a gunner in the Sri Lanka artillery, a regiment of the Sri Lanka army. Following the Asia cup final, he has been promoted to the rank of sergeant on the 7 July 2008 and the next day commissioned as a second lieutenant.
