Jayawardene cherishes playing against Proteas

COLOMBO: In the twilight of his glorious Test career, Mahela Jayawardene will sign off with a bagful of memories when he hangs up his boots next month. But there is one team he will cherish playing against the most. The stylish right-hander has scored against all-comers but his records against South Africa are enviable. His highest Test score of 374 came against the Proteas at home in 2006 -- a game that Sri Lanka went on to win by an innings and 153 runs. In 17 Test matches against South Africa, the 37-year-old batsman has scored 1,782 runs at an average of nearly 60. He has scored the maximum Test runs against England with a tally of 2,212.–AFP
