Retirement XI of 2015


3. Kumar Sangakkara (Sri Lanka):

Retirement XI of 2015The Sri Lankan legend, Kumar Sangakkara will always be hailed as a great ambassador of the game. Sanga’s greatness was not only limited to his excellence with the willow in hand but the spirit in which he played the game reminds us why cricket is called a gentlemen’s game. The southpaw was the symbol of class and elegance and his effortless cover-drives will always be treasured by his fans. With age, his consistency and efficiency reached a different level all-together. It’s hard to imagine that a player who scored 4 consecutive hundreds in his last ODI tournament which was cricket’s mega event, the World Cup, put down curtains on his illustrious career at a time when he was at the peak of his career.

Kumar aggregated 28,016 runs in international cricket and holds a mind-wobbling tally of 63 centuries and 153 half-centuries against his name.
