Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara earlier today, became the first player in history 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 today.
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 Aussies 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.
The Lankans finished their innings at 368 in the allotted 50 overs for the loss of 9 wickets. They have set the Scots a formidable target of 369 runs.
