Prodigious cricketer, Sri Lanka Cricket Captain Mahela Jayawardena, probably one of the best cricketing brains to be produced by Sri Lanka joined the higher educational expo Future Minds 2012 as its brand ambassador.
Starting his career with flying colours as a youngster full of skill and style, Mahela made the best of every opportunity that came his way in developing a flamboyant career. Mahela has the disctinction of becoming captain of the Sri Lanka Cricket Team twice, being the first and only Sri Lankan to score 10,000 test runs, the highest ever test score by a Sri Lankan of 374 against South Aftrica and much more.
With such achievements, Mahela has shown how one could realise a dream with passion. Whilst any cricketer goes through a bad patch once in a while, Mahela demonstrated how to make the right choices, with the right help to steer his career to the summit.
Talent complemented by focus, determination and most of all a clear objective is the formula of his tremendous success.
Having risen to the highest echelons of world cricket, the career of the Sri Lankan Captain is an exemplary model for aspiring youngsters to emulate and Mahela has joined forces with Future Minds in endorsing the leading higher educational expo as the best forum to plan and make the right choice of a great career for students.
