Veteran cricketer Sanath Jayasuriya and Sri Lanka's 1996 World Cup winning skipper Arjuna Ranatunga have won seats in parliament, a local official said Friday.

Jayasuriya contested Thursday's polls for President Mahinda Rajapakse's United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) and left the island a day before voting to play at an Indian tournament.

The 40-year-old batsman and political novice was given special permission to cast his ballot on Wednesday, a day ahead of the nationwide election.
