The former Sri Lanka skipper is considered a modern great due to the effortlessness of his classy batting.

Considered as one of the best players of spin bowling, Jayawardene was a cornerstone of Sri Lankan batting and the second batsman from his country to score 10,000 ODI runs.

Although his ODI batting average was comparatively low than his contemporaries, between the 2011 and 2015 World Cups, Jayawardene scored 3102 runs in 100 ODIs.

He scored four ODI tons and 21 fifties and maintained a strike rate of 83.11 during the period.

Jayawardene's highest score came in a 2011 ODI against England at Headingley, where he beautifully crafted 144 off 150 deliveries.

Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara added 159 runs for the third wicket, which is a record for Sri Lanka against England.
