Sri lanka 276 all out: Kumar becomes 3rd highest ODI run getter
Mahela Jayawardana’s 94, Kumar Sangakkara’s 76 and Thilakarathna Dilshan’s 44 took Sri Lanka to 276 all out in 49.3 overs in the 4th ODI against New Zealand played at Nelson.
Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat first.
Sri Lanka got off to a shaky start after losing opener Dimuth Karunarathna for just 5 runs but the seniors took Sri Lanka towards a commanding total but a low middle order collapse meant Sri Lanka had to be satisfied with 276, as they lost their last 6 wickets for 31 runs.
Sangakkara achieved yet another feat by becoming the highest ODI run getter for Sri lanka surpassing Sanath Jayasuriya and becoming the 3rd highest in the world.
