Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara got to the 100th ton of his international career as Surrey outclassed Yorkshire in the second quarter-final of the Royal London One-Day Cup played at Headingley, Leeds last evening. Surrey won the knockout game by 24 runs.
Batting first, Surrey lost 3 wickets for 70 in just the 14th over of the game. Sanga partnered up with Ben Foakes to lift the side to 250 in 43 overs. Super Sanga went on to complete the 100th ton of his career with 4 sixes and 9 fours under his name. He made a run-a-ball 121 at a healthy strike rate of 100.
In response, Yorkshire appeared steady in their chase with useful contributions down the order. However, a dramatic collapse helped Surrey through to a comprehensive win.
Kumar Sangakkara was adjudged player of the match for his contribution with the bat.
Cricketers from around the world congratulated Sanga for his remarkable achievement.
