New Delhi: Legendary Sri Lankan batsman Kumar Sangakkara, who recently retired from Test cricket, scored a big hundred for Surrey on Monday to play a crucial role in his side's thrilling victory over Nottinghamshire in the 2nd Semi-Final of Royal London One-Day Cup.
The elegant left-hander smashed 166 runs off 138 balls, laced with 13 boundaries and a six to help Surrey put up a fighting total of 300, after deciding to bat first.
Sanga's magnificent ton shows that he still has a lot of cricket left in him.
His blistering knock helped his side win the thriller by four runs.
For his outstanding knock, the Lankan was eventually rewarded with the Man of the Match award.
The 37-year-old has retired from all-forms of international cricket.
With the win, Surrey have reached the final of the tournament, where they will play with Gloucs at Lord's.
