Thank you Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene – Sri Lankan Fans from UK
Veterans Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene, playing their last one-day international on home soil, whetted the appetite of some 20,000 Sri Lankan fans at the Premadasa stadium before being dismissed.
Jayawardene had hit 28 off 22 balls when he pulled a short ball from Harry Gurney to the long-leg fielder. Sangakkara offered a tame catch to mid-wicket off Moeen Ali after making 33.
Jayawardene, who has already retired from Tests, will hang up his boots after the World Cup. Sangakkara too will quit one-dayers after the tournament, although he remains non-committal about his future in Tests.
