Kumar Sangakarra and Angelo Mathews’ names have been physically etched onto theLord’s Honours Board in the Away Dressing Room, to mark their centuries against England in the 1st Investec Test match.
The milestone was one that Sangakarra was desperate to achieve having failed in his previous three Test matches at Lord’s to score a century on the famous Ground.
The 36-year-old hit 147 in the first innings of the England v Sri Lanka Investec Test match to join fellow Sri Lanka great and his close friend Mahela Jayawardene on the Honours Boards.
Jayawardene having scored centuries in 2002 and 2006 at the Home of Cricket.
During the same innings Sri Lanka captain Mathews also passed the landmark with his gutsy 102.
