Mahela Jayawardene has scored 33 Test centuries for Sri Lanka.

Mahela Jayawardene is a Sri Lankan cricketer and a former captain of the Sri Lanka national cricket team. He has been described as one of the best batsmen produced by the country.[1][2] Jayawardene was the leading run-scorer for Sri Lanka in Tests, after fellow Sri Lankan Kumar Sangakkara surpassed him, and Mahela has scored 33 centuries.[3] He has scored 16 centuries in his One Day International (ODI) career, and is the third-highest run-scorer for Sri Lanka.[4] He is the highest scorer for the country in Twenty20 International (T20I) matches as well, and has scored one century.[5] Jayawardene was chosen as captain of the International Cricket Council's (ICC) World One Day International team and selected as Captain of the Year at the 2006 ICC Awards.[6] He was recognized as one of the Wisden Cricketers of the Year in 2007,[7] and was a member of the ICC World Test team the following year.[8]

Jayawardene's debut Test match was against India in August 1997, in which the Sri Lankan team made a world record 952 runs for 6 wickets.[9] He scored his maiden Test century in his fourth match, played in June 1998 against New Zealand.[10] The 150 he scored against Bangladesh in September 2001 is the fastest Test century made by a Sri Lankan player.[11] However, this innings came to an unusual end when he retired out just after reaching 150 runs.[N 1][15] Jayawardene's best innings was made against South Africa in July 2006 when he scored 374 runs, surpassing Sanath Jayasuriya's record of 340 for the highest individual score by a Sri Lankan batsman.[16] It is also the fourth-highest score in Test cricket,[17] as well as part of the world's highest Test partnership—624 runs—which he established with teammate Kumar Sangakkara.[18] Jayawardene has scored a total of 31 centuries during his career, the highest number by a Sri Lankan player.[19] He has scored more than 200 runs on six of these occasions. This is the second-highest number of double centuries by a Sri Lankan player, a record which Jayawardene shares with Marvan Atapattu.[20] He is also one of only two players who have scored a triple century for Sri Lanka; the other is Jayasuriya.[21]

Jayawardene made his ODI debut against Zimbabwe on 24 January 1998, and scored his first century a year later, against England on 23 January 1999.[22] Although not as illustrious as his Test centuries, he has since made 15 ODI centuries for Sri Lanka. This is the second-highest number of centuries for Sri Lanka by a single player behind Jayasuriya's 28.[23] On 10 June 2007, Jayawardene scored 107 runs for the Asia XI team, which he captained during the 2007 Afro-Asia Cup.[24] Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who scored an unbeaten 139 in the same match, and Jayawardene are the only players who have scored a century for Asia XI.[25] Jayawardene became the sixth player to score a century at a Cricket World Cup Final with an unbeaten 103 against India during the final match of the 2011 Cricket World Cup.[N 2] However, Sri Lanka lost the match, making Jayawardene the first centurion in a lost cause at a World Cup final.[27][28]

Jayawardene made his T20I debut against England on 15 June 2006, and scored his first century against Zimbabwe on 3 May 2010.[29] Jayawardene was the fourth player to score a century in a T20I, and the first Sri Lankan to do so.[30]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ When a batsman leaves the field due to a reason other than injury or illness, and does not resume his innings later, he is ruled "retired out".[12] On this particular match, Sri Lankan captain Sanath Jayasuriya decided to recall Marvan Atapattu and Jayawardene after they had scored 201 and 150 respectively, which resulted in their dismissals. This was the first time a retired out had occurred in Test cricket, and Jayawardene was the second batsman to be dismissed in this manner following Atapattu. Although it was done to give the other batsmen a chance to bat, this incident attracted a considerable amount of criticism from Sri Lankan media, who claimed that it was a demeaning of Test cricket.[13][14]
  2. ^ Adam Gilchrist (2007), Ricky Ponting (2003), Aravinda de Silva (1996), Viv Richards (1979) and Clive Lloyd (1975) had previously scored centuries in a World Cup Final.[26]
  3. ^ This century was scored for Asian XI.
