The two Sri Lankan cricketers Mahela Jayawardana (captain) and Kumara Sangakkara (vice captain) put a world record partnership - 624 for any wicket on last Saturday (29/07/2007) against South Africa, a leading cricket team. This is the first time a partnership grew over 600 mark in cricket history.

In this brilliant knock the scorecard of the two players;
  • Mahela J - 374 (752 mins, 572 balls) with 43x4 & 1x6
  • Sangakkara K - 287 (675 mins, 457 balls) with 35x4
This is Sangakkara's 4th double hundred (& carrier best) while Mahela's first ever 300. This is the 21st time a player passed the 300 mark ever in history.
