Roshan Mahanama and Sanath Jayasuriya, who set a new world record in Test cricket with a 576-run partnership on August 6, 1997, in the first Test against India, are garlanded after their feat. Although Jayasuriya narrowly missed Brian Lara’s individual world record of 375, Sri Lanka set a new world record for the highest Test total in an innings. © AFP/SENA VIDANAGAMA
