ADELAIDE – What could be seemed only a dream for Pakistani batsmen including Ahmed Shehzad, Shahid Afridi, Younis Khan and Others, Sri Lanka’s left handed batsman Kumar Sangakkara sets a record of scoring four consecutive centuries in world cup. PakistanTribe reported.

One Day match is underway in Adelaide where Sri Lanka’s left hand batsman Kumar Sangakkara scored his fourth consecutive century in world cup, settingĀ a world record.

Over the past five years – at least since 2009 – Sangakkara has consistently defied standard notions of sporting lifespans and batting form.

“The best thing as a senior cricketer you can do is to hold your place in the side and pull your own weight,” Sanga has said recently.

In Tests, he is the fifth-highest scorer of all time, only behind Tendulkar, Ponting, Kallis and Dravid. He is only the second after Tendulkar to cross 14,000 runs in ODIs.
