#4 Most Consecutive Centuries - Kumar Sangakkara

England v Sri Lanka - 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup
England v Sri Lanka - 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup

Kumar Sangakkara is one of the best players that Sri Lanka has ever produced. The stylish left-handed batsman had his best World Cup campaign in 2015.

Sanga was the lone warrior in Sri Lanka's disappointing World Cup performance in Australia. He was the 2nd highest run scorer with 541 runs in just 7 matches at a Bradmanesque average of 108.20 with 4 centuries.

Sanga scored those 4 centuries in 4 consecutive matches against Bangladesh, England, Australia and Scotland. Even with such a super-human effort, he couldn't take Sri Lanka past the Quarterfinal, ending his career in a state of sorrow.

Kapil Dev is always regarded as one of the best all-rounders in world cricket. Since his departure, India has found it difficult to find someone of his caliber in the past 25 years.

Kapil, at the age of 24, led the Indian team to their first World Cup triumph in 1983. With that, he also became the youngest captain ever to win a World Cup, a record unbroken for the past 35 years.

Since the average age of the captains in the upcoming World Cup is 27+, it is affirmative that the above record will continue to be unbroken for another 5 years.
