About Sanath Jayasuriya (from Wikipedia Page)

Deshabandu Sanath Teran Jayasuriya is a former Sri Lankan cricketer and a former captain of the Sri Lankan national team.

Considered as one of the greatest attacking batsmen of his era, Jayasuriya is well known for his powerful striking and match-winning all-round performances in ODI cricket.

Jayasuriya is credited for having revolutionized one-day international cricket with his explosive batting with Romesh Kaluwitharana in the mid 1990s, which initiated the hard-hitting modern-day batting strategy of all nations.

Jayasuriya was an all-rounder, who had an international cricket career that spread over four decades.

He is the only player to score over 10,000 runs and capture more than 300 wickets in One Day International cricket, and hence regarded as one of the best all-rounders in the history of limited-overs cricket.

He was named the Most Valuable Player of 1996 Cricket World Cup and Wisden Cricketers ‘Almanack broke an age-old tradition by naming him one of Five Cricketers’ of the Year 1997 despite not playing the previous season in England.

Jayasuriya was also the captain of the Sri Lankan cricket team from 1999 to 2003.
