7. Kumar Sangakkara (Sri Lanka):
The second most prolific run-scorer in the history of international cricket, Kumar Sangakkara’s ODI career came to an end on a high in 2015. Out of 13 ODI innings this year, the southpaw crossed the 50 run mark on 7 occasions. Though Kumar couldn’t take his side past the Quarter-Finals stage in the World Cup but he did create history in the tournament when he became the first batter to plunder 4 consecutive ODI hundreds. The former Sri Lankan Captain holds the record for most number of centuries in a single World Cup. In 14 matches this year, Sanga made 862 runs at an unbelievable average of 86 while his strike-rate was also in excess of 100 which is a testimony of how well he performed at the fag-end of his career when most players are found struggling to keep up their reputation.
