Kumar Sangakkara passes Ricky Ponting on ODI run list

Christchurch: Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara on Saturday became the second highest run-maker in one-day international history during the World Cup clash against New Zealand in Christchurch.

Sangakkara started the day on 13,693 runs and needing just 12 more to pass Australia's Ricky Ponting who made 13,704 runs before he retired.

The Sri Lankan left-hander reached the milestone when he flicked Adam Milne down the leg side for a four in the 16th over of his team's reply to New Zealand's imposing 331 for six.

India legend Sachin Tendulkar tops the list for most ODI runs with a mammoth 18,426.
