Overnight batsmen Sourav Ganguly (16) and Laxman (13) began well but before they could really get their eyes in, Mendis struck, trapping the stylish Hyderabadi with a trademark carrom ball to peg India back.
India made amends for the Colombo debacle by trouncing Sri Lanka by 170 runs within four days to level the three-match Test series 1-1.
