About Kumar Sangakkara (born 27 October 1977, Matale, Sri Lanka) is a Sri Lankan cricketer and the former captain of the Sri Lanka national cricket team. He is a left-handed top-order batsman. He used to play as a wicket-keeper and top-order batsman in all forms of the game, but has stopped keeping wicket in Tests as his batting average is significantly higher in Tests when he plays as a pure batsman. He has been ranked as the number 1 Test batsman in the world several times during his career. Following the world cup defeat to India he has since stepped down from the captaincy. Sangakkara is third in the list of Test double century-makers, behind Donald Bradman and Brian Lara. He scored his eighth double ton in Test cricket on October 21, 2011 against Pakistan at Abu Dhabi.
