7. 203 against New Zealand in 2015 :
As most of Sanga’s performances away from home have gone in vain this one was no different, Sri Lanka were already lagging behind in the two match series and they had to win this test to draw it. Sri Lanka put the Kiwis to bat and bowled them for a fairly low total of 221 and in reply Sri Lanka were early down to two wickets for only 25 runs. Came in the crisis man Sangakkara to help his team out of this tricky situation and well he made a brilliant hundred and helped Sri Lanka get a valuable lead of above 100 runs. In this magnificent knock in away conditions Sanga hit 18 lovely boundaries and dispatched 3 balls for sixes. Although the effort in the end proved to be in vain as Williamson in return hit a great double hundred too and Sri Lanka lost the match but this match just showed how well Sangakkara lead the team of youngsters from the front.
