LONDON: Lancashire have signed experienced Sri Lankan batsman Mahela Jayawardene for the upcoming T20 Blast campaign. He played for Somerset last season and has since appeared for Karachi Kings and Central Stags in T20 competitions in Pakistan and New Zealand.
The 39-year-old helped Sr Lanka win the 2014 World T20 and has scored 5,455 runs in the game’s shortest format. “I can’t wait to watch him bat,” Lancashire head coach Glen Chapple told BBC Radio Lancashire.
“He has a massive amount of experience in T20 cricket, in cricket all around the world and great captaincy experience. He’ll add in all areas for us.” Lancashire won their first T20 Blast title in 2015, but failed to progress from the group stage last season.
Former Sri Lanka captain Jayawardene said: “Lancashire is a huge county with a fine history in the game.
There is a young group of players at the club and I’m really looking forward to the opportunity to working with them and to be part of the T20 campaign this summer. Agencies
