Veteran Kumar Sangakkara is poised to join the exclusive 10,000-run club in the Boxing Day Test at Melbourne against Australia, a landmark he plans to build on.

The prolific batsman needs just 40 more runs in his 115th Test to join the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, Rahul Dravid and Jacques Kallis to complete the milestone.

With 9,960 runs at a magnificent average of 55.64, Sangakkara only sits behind skipper Mahela Jayawardene  on the Sri Lankan all-time list, having made his debut against South Africa in 2000.
