Former Sri Lanka captain Sanath Jayasuriya will ring the day two five-minute bell during the 1st Investec Test Match at Lord's.

Jayasuriya will signal five minutes before the start of play on the second day from in front of the Bowlers' Bar in the Lord's Pavilion.

He follows former England captain Andrew Strauss, who was awarded the honour on day one of the Test.

All-rounder Jayasuriya enjoyed a prolific career for his country, particularly in 50-over cricket, where he redifined the role of the opening batsman in One Day Internationals as a pinch hitter in the 1996 ICC World Cup tournament - which Sri Lanka won.

He played in 110 Tests, 31 T20Is and a phenomenal 445 ODIs for his country - the second most appearances in the format by any player - in a career spanning 23-years.
