The Sri Lankan team will play against Pakistan in the second test that will commence on Thursday at the SSC Grounds in Colombo.
Cricket fans will not see Mahela Jayawardena after the second test in the white kit again, as he bids farewell to the longer format of the game.
Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardena are both amongst the top batsman who have passed the 11,000 runs mark in test cricket.
Mahela Jayawardena has scored a total of 2863 runs in 26 test matches played at the SSC and is the highest scorer at any single venue in test cricket.
Tweeting about his last Test match, the cricket star said,
