"Jai-uh-warr-duh-nuh" leads Sri Lanka on day one

"Jai-uh-warr-duh-nuh," "Puh-rawn-nuh-vee-tuh-nuh,""Suh-marr-uh-weer-uh."
I've been practicing my pronunciation of the SRI LANKAN players' names in advance of this week's FIRST TEST against ENGLAND in Galle.
I'm listening to the first day's play on the radio online.
Sri Lanka are at 289-8 thanks to a score of 168 by MAHELA JAYAWARDENE ("Muh-hey-luh Jai-uh-warr-duh-nuh").
Heading into the series, I thought England could have their hands full dealing with Sri Lanka.
Thus far, thought, Jayawardene is the only one of the hosts with a decent score.
JAMES ANDERSON ("Jaymz Ahn-dur-sun") has taken three wickets against 56 runs scored for England.
