Colombo:
Sri Lankan opener Sanath Jayasuriya is just 10 runs short of reaching 10,000 runs in limited-overs internationals. Jayasuriya, 36, needed 33 runs to become the first Sri Lankan batsmen and the fourth in the world to post 10,000 runs in one-dayers, but fell lbw on 23 to pace bowler Deighton Butler in a tri-series game against the West Indies. It was Jayasuriya's 336th match. On Saturday, Jayasuriya recovered from a shoulder injury - suffered during the tri-series opener against India last week - that forced him to skip two games. India's Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly, and Pakistan captain Inzamm-ul-Haq are the three other batsmen who have crossed the coveted 10,000-run mark. India's star batsman Tendulkar leads the standings list with 13,642 runs from 348 matches, followed by Inzamam's 10,933 in 344 games. Ganguly joined the 10,000-club Wednesday when he returned to action after serving a four-match suspension. He made 51, taking his tally to 10,018 runs in 272 matches. (AP)
