Kumar Sangakkara
Kumar Sangakkara
Born: 27/10/77
Team: Nondescripts
ODI debut: 05/07/00
Past World Cups: -

Left-handed batsman

Sangakkara has enjoyed a meteoric rise ever since joining Sri Lanka's international ranks in 2000.

At Test level he has only played 38 innings but has an average of almost 50.

The 25-year-old has already scored four tons including a 230 against Pakistan in early 2002.

Batting in the top order, Sangakkara has virtually cemented his place in the one-day side with a number of solid performances towards the end of 2002.

If he keeps up his consistency then he will become a very big player in world cricket.
