Anderson hails 'brilliant' Jayawardene

England bowler Jimmy Anderson says Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene's unbeaten 168 on the first day of the first Test in Galle is "one of the best Test innings I have ever seen."

Anderson took three wickets, including an opening spell of 2-6 in 10 overs to move to joint fifth on the all-time England list with 252 Test wickets.

Jayawardene's cultured innings lifted Sri Lanka to 289-8 at the end of the opening day of the two-Test series.
