Sri Lanka - Jayawardene

Sri Lanka struggled against an admirably effective Pak attack to limp to 235 /9 after 50 overs - thanks to a surprising knock of 69 n.o. by their bowling all rounder Mahroof!

And this when they have not one but two Jayawadanes in the midst of them! Yes - and I couldn't help but notice the scorecard with each of them having 4 initials in their name!

On further probing, I found their names to be as follows:
Mahela's full name : Denagamage Proboth Mahela de Silva Jayawardene
Prasanna's full name: Hewasandatchige Asiri Prasanna Wishvanath Jayawardene

Now we know the secret to Mahela's batting talent! He has a 'De Silva' hidden in his name! :-)
