Canterbury: Mahela Jayawardene hit a stylish century as Sri Lanka began its tour of England in commanding form against Kent here on Saturday.[an error occurred while processing this directive]The Lankans, who had sat shivering in the pavilion for the first day of the match on Friday as the rain put paid to any thoughts of play, made up for lost time as they reached 375 all out by stumps.Veteran Aravinda de Silva was also in the runs, hitting nine fours and a six in his innings of 63 against his former county while Russell Arnold made 81 and Thilan Samaraweera, with 57, both made the most of some lacklustre Kent bowling.Sri Lankan skipper Sanath Jayasuriya won the toss and elected to bat but that decision backfired on him personally when he was out off the second ball of the day to the impressive seam of Martin Saggers.Jayawardene and de Silva eventually rescued the tourists with a 151-run fourth-wicket stand, which came off just 29 overs. Saggers dismissed de Silva who was caught by David Fulton in the slips before Jayawardene brought up his 113-ball hundred.There were plenty of boundaries in Arnold's 87-run partnership with Samaraweera before Kent fought back to take the last five wickets for just 43 runs.
