Kumar Sangakkara hits record fourth successive ODI ton


HOBART (Australia): Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara on Wednesday became the first player to make four successive one-day international centuries.

The 37-year-old reached the landmark in the World Cup Pool A match against Scotland at Hobart’s Bellerive Oval.

Sangakkara had made 105 not out against Bangladesh, an unbeaten 117 in the game with England followed by 104 against Australia.

That century against the hosts at Sydney on Sunday took him alongside Zaheer Abbas, Saeed Anwar, Herschellle Gibbs, AB de Villiers, Quinton de Kock and Ross Taylor in making three successive centuries.
