Sanath Jayasuriya headed back to South Africa | Nashua Dolphins

Sanath Jayasuriya will return to South Africa this week to complete his stint with the Nashua Dolphins.

Jayasuriya will join the Dolphins at the end of the current India series.

Jayasuriya's first stint with the Dolphins was not a productive outing for the veteran - However, his 28th ODI century against India recently has boosted the dashing opener back into form.

The first leg will be played at Newlands on Friday and Sanath Jayasuriya will be back for the Dolphins to add weight to batting and bowling departments.

Jayasuriya was forced to leave for national duty as Sri Lanka re-organised their international calendar after a tour programme upheaval in the sub-continent, when India cancelled their Test and one-day international series tour of Pakistan.

The Sri Lankan opener was called by his national selectors for the one-day and Twenty20 games against Bangladesh, Pakistan and India. Jayasuriya will return to Durban tomorrow and will be included in the Dolphins' 13-man squad for Friday's first leg of the semi-final and the second leg at Kingsmead on Sunday, starting at 2pm.

With the Sri Lankan returning, a tough selection call will have to be made - Martin Bekker has to be left out for Jayasuriya in the final XI. Jon Kent or Pierre de Bruyn may feel aggrieved at being dropped for the crucial semi-final stage. But Kent's all-round ability as a batsman and bowler may count in his favour.

So South African's be ready for Run feast !! Sanath Jayasuriya in full form
