New Delhi: Even though Sri Lanka lost their second game in a row in the ongoing five-match series against India, the legendary Kumar Sangakkara achieved a personal milestone.
The wicketkeeper batsman, who scored 61 runs off 86 balls, crossed South Africa all-rounder Jacques Kallis' record of 86 half-centuries in one-day internationals, with only Sachin Tendulkar ahead of him now.
Sangakkara slammed his 87th century in ODIs and went past Kallis. Sangakkara now would be desperate to add ten more fifties to his name, which would take him to the top of the list.
Sanga was dismissed for just 13 runs in the first ODI, but at Motera, he once again found form and played a crucial knock for his side even though it was for a losing cause.
The left-hander has a fair chance of breaking Tendulkar's record as he would also be a part of Sri Lanka's World Cup squad.
