Sanath Jayasuriya, a former Sri Lankan cricketing great and one of the standout batters of his era, has lent his support to Waqar Younis’s call for changes to enhance the competitiveness of one-day internationals. Waqar had urged the International Cricket Council (ICC) to consider modifications to the use of two balls in an ODI innings.

In response to Waqar Younis’s proposal, Jayasuriya expressed his agreement and brought Sachin Tendulkar into the conversation.

“I agree with @waqyounis99, some changes have to be made. If @sachin_rt had the privilege to bat with two balls and under the current power play rules in our era, his runs and centuries would have doubled,” remarked Jayasuriya.

Sachin Tendulkar, widely acknowledged as one of the greatest batsmen in cricket history, achieved the remarkable milestone of 100 international centuries in his career. While 51 of these centuries were scored in red-ball cricket, the remaining 49 came in the fifty-over format.

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli is on the cusp of surpassing Sachin’s record in ODIs, needing just one more century to achieve this milestone. Kohli recently equaled Tendulkar’s world record during the ongoing ICC World Cup 2023, securing his 49th century against South Africa at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
