Jayawardene returns for Central Districts

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 21/11/2016

Central Districts will hope for another injection of runs from Mahela Jayawardene after contracting the Sri Lankan batting great for the Twenty20 season.

The 39-year-old scored 249 runs in four innings last year for Central Districts.

Jayawardene has been contracted to play through this summer's championship although he won't start until round two or three in December, depending on when his commitments in the Bangladesh Premier League finish.

After scoring more than 25,000 runs in all forms of international cricket, Jayawardene retired last year to focus on playing and coaching in professional T20 leagues.
