#7Β SANATH JAYASURIYA (340)

Jayasuriya sapped out the Indian bowling attack in the company of Roshan Mahanama

India was at the receiving end of a mammoth partnership between Jayasuriya and Roshan Mahanama, a stand that turned out to be the biggest of all times for any wicket. Jayasuriya, batting at his customary opening position, combined with Roshan Mahanama, who came one-down, to stitch together a 576-run stand.

Jayasuriya, along with Mahanama, batted for two full days, tiring the Indian bowlers beyond recovery to score 340, the highest individual score by a Sri Lankan until 2006. The Sri Lankans managed to put 952-6, the highest Test score ever, batting for a mammoth 271 overs.
