Kumar Sangakkara succeeded in not giving his wicket away but ran out of partners in his final first class appearance for Surrey against Lancashire in the Specsavers County Championship Division One at Manchester.
Lancashire requires 44 runs to win the game with 7 wickets in hand.
Surrey made 208 and 242 in the first and second innings opposed to Lancashire’s 268. Sangakkara made 14 in the first innings.
Livingstone’s half century gave Lancashire the perfect platform to chase the target of 176.
“I’ll miss it terribly, without a doubt, but that’s a good thing. A lot of players walk away bitter and upset and regretting a lot of the things that might have been. I walk away with a few regrets, like anyone would, but I’m absolutely happy with the way I played the game and what I’ve achieved. The game goes on and that’s the beauty of any sport. It doesn’t matter who retires or who comes into play – the sport will be bigger than all of us,” said the Sri Lankan legend.
However, he will continue to play franchise based twenty20 cricket elsewhere.
