BIO: Kumar Sangakkara is a Sri Lankan cricketer who is perhaps described as one of the "most polished and prudent of batsmen" in cricket.

He made his One Day International debut on 5 July 2000 in a macth against Pakistan. His profile is that of a left-handed top-order batsman and the wicket-keeper , especially while playing One Day International (ODI) series and Twenty20 series. In 2009, after Mahela Jayawardene stepped down from the Captains' position, Kumar Sangakkara was given the Captain's armband, at the age of 31 and with the experience of 80 Tests and 246 ODIs. He has many achievements and plaudits to his credit. He captained the national team from 2009 to 2011, stepping down after the 2011 ICC World Cup final. The same year, he was named the ODI Cricketer of the Year at the ICC awards ceremony. In 2012, he was honored as one of the top-five Wisden Cricketers of the Year. With 8 double centuries, he is the third in the list of Test double century-makers, only behind Don Bradman and Brian Lara.
