5. 221 against Pakistan in 2014 :
10th Double century for Kumar Sangakkara this was(now he has 11), only Bradman is ahead of him in this department. Kumar’s 221 proved to be very vital for Sri Lanka as Pakistan in the first innings had put up a huge total of 451 runs and in reply to that a special effort was needed and Sanga “The Cult hero” once again provided it with a magnificent, classy and majestic double century. Thanks to Sangakkara’s double Sri Lanka got to a total of 533 and got a very precious lead of about 80 odd runs. Pakistan were cheaply bowled out for 180, giving Sri Lanka a very easy win. Although Sanga wasn’t adjudged as man of the match but this surely will go down as one of his finest knocks.
