Sanath travelling to Jaffna on the Yal Devi train

The Yal Devi train service, which was halted due to decades of war, resumed service to the north of Sri Lanka after 24 years on October 13, 2014. Sanath Jayasuriya is pictured here with Upul Chandana, Saliya Ahangama and Carlton Bernardus preparing to board the train to Jaffna.
