Mahela Jayawardene's parents at the SSC to witness his last Test match
Friday, 15 August 2014 - 17:37
Mahela Jayawardene's parents Senerath and Susila were present to witness their son playing in his final Test match on the opening morning of the second Test between Sri Lanka and Pakistan at the Sinhalese Sports Club (SSC) Ground in Colombo on August 14, 2014.
Of all the cricketers who have appeared for Sri Lanka since 2011, no one has known a dressing room without Mahela Jayawardene. He is the last link to a less professional era, and to Arjuna Ranatunga's captaincy. He has played more Tests than any other Sri Lanka cricketer.
The cricketing legend is currently playing his final test and will no longer appear in a white kit at the art of action.
