Sri Lanka defeated Pakistan on the final day to win the series 2-0 and give Jayawardene a fitting farewell.

He received a standing ovation on his final walk back to the dressing rooms.

Jayawardene was eventually dismissed for 54 in his final Test knock and was congratulated by opposition players as he walked off for the last time.

The 37-year-old scored his 50th half-century in his final Test innings and combined with longtime friend Kumar Sangakkara to put on a valuable partnership.

As he walked out to bat for the last time, in Sri Lanka's second innings, Pakistan players offered yet another guard of honour and shared a light moment with the legend.

The Sinhalese Sports Club Ground, Jayawardene's home ground and the venue of his final Test, was decked in banners in tribute for him.

The Sri Lankan veteran received a guard of honour from schoolboy cricketers at the start of the second morning.
