Greatest Asian ODI XI of All Time


4. Kumar Sangakkara (Sri Lanka)

Greatest Asian ODI XI of All TimeOne of the unsung heroes of the game, Kumar Sangakkara was never considered in the same league as Sachin, Lara or Ponting. Perhaps, Sanga was never as flamboyant as the other icons of the game but yet his greatness lies in his unabated competence and consistency. The only batsman to score four successive hundreds in ODIs, the Lankan southpaw is also the second highest run-scorer in the history of international cricket. What made him even more special was the time of his retirement, the former Lankan skipper hung up his boots when he was at the peak of his powers which is unlike many other players who continue playing the game even after not being on the top of their game, just on the basis of their name and fame.
