SRI LANKA cricket legend Mahela Jayawardene aims to bow out on a high today in his last international on home soil – and that spells trouble for England.
The tourists have already lost the series in which they trail 4-2 ahead of Tuesday’s final ODI in Colombo. And batsman Jayawardene, who will retire after the World Cup in February, is third favourite at 4-1 with Paddy Power to finish with a flourish as his side’s top batsman in his home city.
The Sri Lankans are 8-13 with Boylsports for victory and England are 11-8 at bet365 to grab a hollow victory and end the series with a 4-3 defeat.
