ICC World Cup: Kumar Sangakkara surpasses Ponting record on ODI run list
The Sri Lanka cricket team has not had a good beginning in the World Cup 2015. In their very first encounter they have been defeated by Kiwis by a margin of 98 runs. Alike team India, none of their bowler could spread their magic, as a result of which Kiwis comfortably scored 331 runs. Obviously the Sri Lankan batting could not sustain and Kiwis have moved ahead.
Nevertheless, Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara has become the second highest run-getter in one-day international history during the World Cup clash in Christchurch.
When Sangakkara entered the ground and started the day, he was on 13,693 runs and needed just 12 more to pass Australia’s Ricky Ponting who had a figure of 13,704 runs to his credit before he retired.
The Sri Lankan left-hander reached the milestone as soon as he flicked Adam Milne down the leg side for a four in the 16th over of his team’s innings. It is important to highlight that by and large the Sri Lankan team is dependent on these two veterans Kumar Sangakara and Mahela Jayawardene so far as their batting attack is concerned. However, it is nice to note that despite his age, Sangakkara has achieved yet another glorious record. He is certainly a role model for many young aspirants. However, India legend Sachin Tendulkar tops the list for most ODI runs with a mammoth 18,426.
