One of the clean strikers of the ball, Sanath Jayasuriya is a legend of Sri Lankan cricket. He revolutionized the way one-day cricket was played with his hard-hitting in the first 15 overs. His attitude towards batting is summed up by an all-aggression approach and over the years he has had the better of almost every one day bowling combination that he has faced at one stage or another. His claim to fame came during the 1996 World Cup where he was named player of the tournament. He held the record for the highest score in Test cricket for Sri Lanka before Jayawardena broke it in 2006. Being a slow left-arm bowler, Jayasuriya has proven himself handy with the ball with more than 300 wickets in ODIs. The 'Matara Mauler' retired from Test cricket in 2007 and was named as one of the Wisden Cricketers of the Year in 1997.
