Jayasuriya 14th batsman to be left stranded on 99

Sanath Jayasuriya became the second Sri Lankan and 14th batsman in ODI history to be left stranded on 99 when he spooned a simple catch to his Indian counterpart off the bowling of Shewag in the final of the Coca- Cola Cup. The only other Sri Lankan to suffer this fate is Romesh Kaluwitharana. This was also the fourth such instance against India.

Of the 14 batsmen who have missed their hundred by just one run, five remained unbeaten as either the innings was completed or the target was achieved.
