Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene, who not only shared an excellent on-field chemistry but also are known to be very good friends, are making use of the former’s retirement and spending some quality time together. Jayawardene shared a picture of the duo on Twitter with a caption, “Catching up on retirement.” The second Test between India and Sri Lanka in the ongoing series was the final international appearance for Sangakkara, who finished the game with some amazing numbers on his chart: 12400 run from 134 Tests at an excellent average of 57.40.

With the three match series 1-1, both the sides are looking to end with a win in the last match that is under way at Colombo. At the end of Day three, India who had a bad last session losing first innings centurion Cheteshwar Pujara for a two ball duck, were 21 for 3, leading Sri Lanka by 132 runs. After Dhamika Prasad’s brilliant spell removed the opener, Nuwan Pradeep picked up both KL Rahul and No. 3 Ajinkya Rahane to leave India reeling at 7 for 3. Rahul was dismissed in almost identical fashion to the way he was dismissed in the first innings, leaving a ball that seamed in slightly and getting bowled.
