Mahela Jayawardena scored the first hundred by a Sri Lankan at the 2011 World Cup a short while ago at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium. This was the fastest hundred by a Sri Lankan at a World Cup which was earlier scored by Sanath Jayasuriya. Mahela achieved the century in 80 balls.

    what......... 100 against an unknown Canadian team. It is like paying with a school team. He should have been not out.

    Congratulations! It's truly awesome. Keep it up boy. You need to give a big hand to other batters, if Sri Lanka to win this WC. Hope you have the talent and determination to make it.
