Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara might not have got a fairytale ending to their final ODI match of their glorious careers but the veterans smiled through the disappointment as they fondly recounted their respective journeys.

Sri Lanka`s front-line spinner Rangana Herath is recovering well and looks likely to face South Africa in Wednesday`s World Cup quarter-final at Sydney Cricket Ground, chief selector Sanath Jayasuriya said on Monday.
