Sangakkara could quit ODIs after World Cup
Kumar Sangakkara has said that the 2015 World Cup could be his final ODI tournament but he has plans to extend his Test career for a while longer.
Sangakkara has already quit T20 internationals, Sri Lanka's victorious World T20 campaign in April being his last outing in the format.
With 12,500 runs from 369 games, Sangakkara is the fourth leading run-getter in ODIs behind only Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting and Sanath Jayasuriya.
He has also been involved in two World Cup finals in 2007 and 2011 and three World T20 finals in 2009, 2012 and 2014, playing a key role in the latest one with a match-winning, unbeaten fifty as Sri Lanka finally broke their run of losing at the last stage of a world event.
