Scorecard (Courtesy Cricinfo)

Mahela's MCG
Between 1928 and 1948, Sir Donald Bradman scored nine centuries in the 11 Tests he played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. This was Jayawardene's 20th Test at this venue, and a single to wide mid-on gave him a share of that record. The last four times he's walked out to bat here, he's left the crease only after making a century. Even Bradman didn't manage that.
