He is undoubtedly Sanath Teran Jayasuriya. He was born on 30 June 1969 in Matara.. He is a Sri Lankan cricketer. He is a left-arm orthodox spin bowler, a skillful infielder. Jayasuriya held the record for the highest Test score made by a Sri Lankan, 340 against India in 1997. This effort was part of a second-wicket partnership with Roshan Mahanama that set the then all-time record for any partnership in Test history, with 576 runs. Both records were surpassed in July 2006 when fellow Sri Lankan Mahela Jayawardene scored 374 as part of a 624-run partnership with Kumar Sangakkara against South Africa.

He jointly holds the record for the second highest ODI score, 189 runs, with Viv Richards. (Second to Saeed Anwar's 194).
He currently holds the record for fastest fifty in ODIs, scored off just 17 balls.
Jayasuriya jointly holds the record for most sixes in an ODI innings, 11, with Shahid Afridi. He hit the sixes during an innings of 134 from 65 balls against Pakistan, in Singapore.
