He has a test cricket average of over 50 and an One Day average in the 30s. He is the first player in the history of Sri Lankan cricket to score over 10,000 Test runs. Despite his relatively low ODI average, Jayawardene is considered to be one of the best batsmen produced by Sri Lanka and is generally held in high regard as a legend of the modern game along with team-mate Kumar Sangakkara. He is one of only three Sri Lankans—the others being Sanath Jayasuriya and Sangakkara—to have scored more than 10,000 runs in ODIs.Jayawardene was a key member of the team that won the 2014 World T20 aswell as the team that made the finals of the 2007 World Cup, the 2011 World Cup and 2012 World T20.In 2006, Jayawardene was named by the International Cricket Council as the best international captain of the year and he was nominated in 2007 as the best Test cricket player of the year.
