Pudsey Congs is pleased to announce the re-signing of Sri Lankan run machine Yohan Mendis for their 2023 Bradford League campaign.

He made his first-class debut in January 2018, scoring a half-century (61), then featured in 4 matches in 2018/19. The following season he struck his maiden first-class century (116 v Negombo) and finished with 305 runs at 30.50, including a notable 62 against the star-studded Nondescripts bowling attack.
To date, Mendis has scored 566 runs at 22.64 in his 16 first-class matches, alongside averages of 18.42 and 31.50 in his 9 List A, and 5 T20 games, respectively, including a highest score of 75 (scored in the One-Day quarter-final).
A player that comes highly recommended by former Sri Lankan legend Rangana Herath, Mendis spent the 2022 season playing for Pudsey Congs in the Bradford League. He was a resounding success hitting 1,127 runs at 66.29 with 12 fifties and 2 hundreds.
Such was his dominance, Pudsey Congs were quick to re-sign their Sri Lankan star for a second stint in 2023.
