Age no barrier for Jayasuriya | Lanka Dairy by S. Dinakar

The Indians have no time to breathe easy in the arena though. Sanath Jayasuriya rolls back the years to become the oldest cricketer to notch up an ODI hundred. Typically exhilarating strokes mark his century.

And guess whose record he breaks? It’s Geoff Boycott, the technically pure and the rather slow paced English opener of the past. Ironies never cease in cricket!

Despite Jayasuriya’s effort, India seals a win. Mahendra Singh Dhoni excels as captain and then delivers with the willow. Booming straight drives from the skipper herald the Indian surge towards the finish line.

A band plays through the entire match. The lilting tunes, enhanced by the rhythmic beat of the drums, have the fans dancing. Cricket in Sri Lanka retains the element of joy.

The man's a genius and an inspiration for those who think 30 is old.
