Default Kumar Sangakkara became the tenth batsman to reach the 10,000-run mark in ODIs

Durability Sangakkara's forte

Kumar Sangakkara, the tenth batsman to reach 10,000 runs, stands out among Sri Lankan batsmen because of his strong performances in foreign conditions

Until November 2011, Sanath Jayasuriya was the only Sri Lanka batsman in the elite 10,000-ODI-runs club. Just 11 matches after Mahela Jayawardene reached the mark against Pakistan, Kumar Sangakkara also achieved the feat, during his breezy knock of 30 against Australia in Sydney. Sri Lanka are thus the only team to have two current players with 10,000-plus ODI aggregates, and also the second team after India to have three players who have surpassed the landmark. Sangakkara, who has been the mainstay of Sri Lanka's batting in Tests and ODIs along with the classy Jayawardene, reached the 10,000-run mark in his 315th ODI. He is the fastest to the mark among Sri Lanka batsmen, both in terms of matches and innings. While most Sri Lanka batsmen have struggled overseas over the years, the compact Sangakkara has dealt with foreign conditions a lot better, and averages close to 40 outside Sri Lanka.

mate do u watch cricket? At the rate Tamim is going he will never reach Sanga. Sanga is one of the best batsmen in the world with the best technique.
