Sanath Jayasuriya, the former left-handed batsman from Sri Lanka certainly changed the dynamics of cricket with his sublime hitting as an opener. He will pair up with Sachin Tendulkar and open the innings for this ODI XI. Jayasuriya has some big accolades to his name that are impossible to be broken in the future.

He is the only player to have scored 13340 runs with 323 wickets for his national team. The left-hander was no less than a nightmare for any bowler when he was playing international cricket. His quick footwork and ability to pick the length of the bowler was unmatchable.

Jayasuriya’s approach was to only dominate bowler on the back of his brutal hitting that made him one of the best openers in the world. This is one of the main reasons that his name is taken alongside Sachin, Sehwag, Sunil Gavaskar and many more.
