[Video] Sanath Jayasuriya 213 Vs England | Oval Test Match 1998

"For nearly two days the England cricketers put the capacity crowd at the Surrey Oval to sleep. But on day three the brilliant batting display of the Sri Lankans - Sanath Jayasuriya awoke the English spectators and set alight the Oval. What a fantastic performance by Sri Lankans, quoted Michael Holding.

Jayasuriya reached his fifth century in his career in 124 balls and reached its epic 213 runs in 346 minutes facing 327 balls of which he dispatched 33 of them to the fence and one over the fence. Sanath Jayasuriya provided the fireworks, with technically skilled batting. Cutting and driving with authority, he trounced every bowler brought against him."
