Sri Lankan stalwart Kumar Sangakkara has become the 1st player ever to score 4 consecutive tons in the Cricket World Cup and in One-Day Internationals (ODIs) after bringing up his 25th ODI century against Scotland in a Pool A clash of the 2015 World Cup today. Courtesy of the knock, he has also become the 1st player to score 4 centuries in a single edition of the World Cup.
Sangakkara’s great run in the ongoing World Cup started when he struck 105* against Bangladesh at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) and has followed it up with scores of 117*, 104 and 124 against England, Australia and Scotland, respectively.
Here are the best Twitter reactions to Sangakkara’s record-breaking innings:
Sangakkara on auto pilot as a batsman these days. Things just happening and he is watching all the fun.
