KANDY---Sri Lanka will play a
test without batting greats Kumar
Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawar-
dene for the first time in 15 years
when the team meets Pakistan for
the series decider starting today.
The 37-year-old Sangakkara,
who announced last weekend that
he ll be retiring from Test cricket
next month, was available only for
the first two matches of the series
that were shared 1-1. Jayawardene
retired last year after a 17-year Test
"For most of us in the squad,
this is the first match for us without
those two," Sri Lanka vice-captain
Lahiru Thirimanne said. "It ll be a
little hard, but we have to get on
with it and play our natural game."
Sangakkara and Jayawardene
have scored more than 24,000 Test
runs between them.
Sri Lanka won the second test
by seven wickets in Colombo to

a fourth straight home test series
against Pakistan. Pakistan won the
first match by ten wickets.
Both Tests were hit by rain inter-
ruptions and the trend could con-

them because they are without
their big players like Mahela and
Sanga," Pakistan captain Misbah-
ul-Haq said. "We have never come
this close to winning a series against
them here in Sri Lanka," he added
of the current group of players.
Both sides have injury worries.

Lanka, bowling with raw pace
during the second Test, but is
struggling with a side strain. He
will undergo a fitness test on Fri-

unlikely to risk him.
The Sri Lankans could play
three seamers and leave out left-
arm spinner Rangana Herath, who
has only picked up two wickets
in the series.
Top-order batsman Upul Tha-
ranga was drafted into the Sri Lanka
squad as a replacement for San-

to test cricket.

South African team was unaware of

"In their country, there is no barrier
to use drone camera but in Bangladesh
