Sanath Jayasuriya PROFILE

One of the world's most uncompromising strikers of the ball, Jayasuriya found belated fame as a pinch-hitter at the 1996 World Cup, and then demonstrated that he was also capable of massive scoring in Tests, eventually becoming Sri Lanka's highest Test run-scorer. He remains dizzily dangerous, especially on the subcontinent's slower, less bouncy surfaces. Short in stature and powerfully built, he cuts and pulls with awesome power, and his brutal bat-wielding is at odds with his shy, gentle nature. Wised-up opponents have learned to set traps in the gully and at third man to stem the flow of runs, but on song he can be virtually unstoppable, capable of scoring freely on both sides of the wicket.

Former Sri Lankan skipper Sanath Jayasuriya is one of the most explosive batsmen in world cricket. The left-handed opening batsman retired from Test cricket after amassing 6,973 runs which included 14 centuries and 31 half-century. Jayasuriya, who plays for Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League, has been an active member of the Sri Lankan squad for the past 20 years and continues to rule as one of the best one-day players.
