Jayawardene made his Test debut in 1997 and his One Day International (ODI) debut, the very next season. In 2006 he made the highest ever score by a Sri Lankan in Test cricket, scoring 374 in the second Test of Sri Lanka's home series against South Africa. He is the first and only player in the history of Sri Lankan cricket to score over 10,000 Test runs. He is highly regarded as a Srilankan legend and placed on the same mantle as Kumar Sangakkara. In 2006, Jayawardene was named by the International Cricket Council as the best international captain of the year and he was nominated in 2007 as the best Test cricket player of the year.
