Didn't want to jeopardise our hard work

Jul 14, 2012: Mahela Jayawardene on why Sri Lanka decided to settle for a draw in Pallekele, and the factors that helped his side beat Pakistan

Mahela Jayawardene

A gamble that almost backfired

Jul 7, 2012: The decision to bowl at the SSC proved risky, and there could have been a result had the Test been played the full five days

Mahela Jayawardene

DRS could have made big impact

Jun 28, 2012: We need technology to help the umpires, the ICC can step in and help certain cricket boards finance it

Mahela Jayawardene

We have gone one-up on their bowlers

Jun 21, 2012: We didn't handle Pakistan's strong bowling well during the series in the UAE, but are more confident after the victory in the one-dayers

Mahela Jayawardene

The start of World Twenty20 preparations

May 31, 2012: The games against Pakistan, and the one against India, are the chance to zero in on our perfect Twenty20 squad

Mahela Jayawardene

As a captain, you love to be challenged

Mahela Jayawardene

You need to fight Australia for every run

Mar 3, 2012: Sri Lanka did well to move on from the Hobart defeat, defending a modest target to qualify for the CB Series finals. Now the last hurdle

Mahela Jayawardene

We need to play the Sri Lankan brand of cricket

Mahela Jayawardene

Two-fifty is a good score under the new Powerplay rules

Nov 17, 2011: Large totals are going to be difficult to achieve without good starts. Teams are going to have to rethink their strategies

Mahela Jayawardene

We've competed, but we've slipped up as well

Nov 9, 2011: One bad session apiece has cost Sri Lanka their last three series. Ironing out those mistakes will be top priority for the side

Mahela Jayawardene

Our mental approach has let us down

Nov 1, 2011: The Pakistan bowling attack has tested Sri Lanka in the first two Tests. Now the Sri Lankan batsmen must figure a way to score off them

Mahela Jayawardene

We're looking to build a strong pace unit

Oct 24, 2011: Sri Lanka got the better of the draw in the first Test, but a bowling attack that struggles to take 20 wickets is a worry

Mahela Jayawardene

Not all doom and gloom despite defeat

Jul 11, 2011: We played some good cricket, weren't outplayed for long periods of time and unearthed some really talented youngsters

Mahela Jayawardene

Chandimal earned his stripes

Jul 5, 2011: Maybe the go-slow at the end was not exactly ideal, but Dinesh Chandimal showed he could take whatever England dished out

Mahela Jayawardene

Cook has my sympathies

Jun 30, 2011: Being an international captain is hard, especially of England, whose limited-overs side are, like ours, in a phase of rebuilding and rethinking

Mahela Jayawardene

Sri Lanka in England 2011

We didn't take the easy way out

Jun 22, 2011: Sri Lanka could have gone into the Tests against England with seven batsmen, but we chose not to, for the sake of building a team for the future

Mahela Jayawardene

We will miss Dilshan

Mahela Jayawardene

We passed the test of character
